    Given the triadic ethical structure of individual, people and God displayed in 2 Chronicles 19:6-7 and John 8, Barth’s and McFague’s theological construals are evaluated for authentic joy through an obedience that leads to participation - beyond a sense of duty or obligation, in dialogue with Hauerwas’ concepts of compliance and obedience.
