Abstract :
In what way, if any, can one propose a phenomenology of the Kingdom of God? Various approaches are considered and rejected, and a new way is elaborated. In his parables and actions Jesus of Nazareth develops a particular mode of reduction, 'basilaic reduction', in which the one who hears it or witnesses it is led back to consider a claim made on him or her since before the Creation of the world. Reduction, here, is a leading to an anterior situation, nor inner consciousness. A close analysis of Luke 15:11-32 forms the center of the discussion.
