BRLSI Belief - The Bible in Africa

Date Description
05 June 2018

Dr Helen John University of Exeter

New Testament accounts of Jesus calming storms and walking on water do not sit easily with scientific worldviews. Did the Gospel authors intend these texts to be understood literally or symbolically? The talk will explore the worldviews of Namibia’s Owambo peoples and demonstrate how African religions may unlock fresh interpretations of ‘problematic’ biblical texts.
