Ethnicity and the Bible
Mark G. Brett
BRILL, 1996 - Religion - 509 pages
This volume reflects the diversities of culture both within biblical texts and among the interpretative communities for whom the Bible is a focus of thought and action. Part One, Ethnicity in the Bible, explores selected texts from the Hebrew Bible and from the New Testament, making use of methodological perspectives drawn from a range of disciplines. Part Two, Culture and Interpretation, looks at examples of how ethnicity figures both in the use of the Bible by indigenous peoples and in professional biblical interpretation. By collecting a diversity of topics into a single volume, the authors raise fresh questions for subjects that are usually treated in isolation from each other.
