Hermeneutics Video 8

February 21, 2009

This video might be profitable in demonstrating what happens when we project modern categories onto ancient narratives.

Come to think of it (even though I profess to be egalitarian, and that disposition is reflected in my work… mostly!) this is sort of what it looks like to me sometimes when I read feminist theology.

Sometimes the conversation you think they were having wasn’t the conversation they were having… and in defense of the ancients, as my friend is wont to observe: “They were politically correct; it was just different politics.”
