Example text

14 As will be shown, both Dionysius and Virgil present Aeneas as a migrant hero. To widen the scope of our investigation, three questions will be dealt with in this chapter. First, how were the Greeks able to accept the story of Aeneas as an invitation to admire the Romans and to collaborate with them? Second, how did Virgil and Dionysius manage to turn Aeneas into a symbol of friendship between Greeks and Romans? Third, how does the story provide us with a paradigm for comprehending Paul’s presentation of Abraham in Romans 4:1–25?

And (5) How do Aeneas and Abraham function in crosscultural hermeneutics? What follows is a discussion of the elements of this methodology, whose aim is to interpret and appropriate62 the biblical message within the Shona context. These elements are: (1) local people as subjects of interpretation, (2) the Shona worldview as the conceptual frame of reference in interpretation, (3) the contextual nature of reading, (4) cultural symbols as tools in interpretation, (5) holistic approach to culture, and (6) seeing the meaning of a text as a function of the interaction between the text’s original context and its present context.

Informed by the cross-cultural world of Paul, this book will establish the need to be sensitive to other cultures. I will present reasons why recognizing Abraham as an ancestor contributes to the enculturation of Christianity in postcolonial Zimbabwe. This study presents the cosmology of the Shona people as not limited by time. For Africans, the physical and spiritual worlds are inseparable. The ancestors are communicating in the language of both worlds, and acting on behalf of both worlds. 109 My motivation for undertaking this project is cultural, because religion is embedded in people’s culture.
