Praxis of Retelling Parables and Miracles

An Intercultural Hermeneutic and Didactic Through Narratives of Tamils
  • By Beschi Jeyaraj
Product Description
A bible theological didactic is not principally reduced to learning and teaching Bible alone but rather extended to understanding and interpreting Bible in one's own religious and pedagogical context. Bible didactic, moreover, does not circumscribe itself only to biblical knowledge in virtue of deducing some abstract and moral principles, but it rather prospects to strengthen and reconstruct one's identity within the choices offered by culture and context. This book aims to engage in an intercultural interpretation of the parables and the miracles of Jesus by dialoging with the culture of Tamils. This comparative study subsequently proposes an alternative synchronic hermeneutic in biblical didactics replacing a deep-seated diachronic model in Tamil land. It also develops a model of sync-culturation superseding fossilised model of inculturation. This book capitalises Tamils' texts and narratives of masses reflected in the archives of Tamil literatures and legends in the process of theologisation. Bearing on the aesthetics of parables and miracles and contextual reading of them, this study brings forward 'the world in front of the text' leaving behind the conventional exegesis of 'the world behind the text'. Dr. Arockia Beski Durai, Navis Jeya Raj, commonly known as Dr. Beschi Jeyaraj is a catholic priest of the diocese of Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu, India. He obtained both his Bachelors and Masters in India and obtained his PhD from the University of Tübingen, Germany.
