Abstract

Koinonia is a concept explaining communion or fellowship in the theology of Christian. After the era of the Internet of Things, the communion pattern has shifted from a direct relationship involving physical presence to an indirect relationship where the internet and all of its products exist among humans. Therefore, it is necessary to build a new conception of digital koinonia. This paper aims to explain the digital koinonia concept and the reasons behind its presence contemporarily. This writing uses library studies and concludes that digital koinonia with its characteristics following the logic of media and the internet is a new epistemology demanding theological reconstruction.
