Judeo-Christian religions also have certain places that are held sacred to their followers. The concept of sacred space is important to Judeo-Christian religions, because it helps to explain the questions of existence. Sacred space provides something tangible to represent religions while reducing the obstacles that prevent religious people from having religious experiences. Judeo-Christian religions have extensive histories in which the concept of sacred space has been instrumental to their developments. Today, sacred space remains important in separating these religions from the rest of the world.

De Lubac agrees with Barth this far, yet De Lubac takes his theology to a higher level. In that the Church also participates in the Divine life of Christ. Karl Barth believes that the human community is what makes up the visible church. The visible Church flows out of the invisible Church. It’s invisible only in the sense that that community is called together in faith to be the Church.
