LK 9, 46-50: BIBLICAL THEOLOGICAL REFLECTIONS ON AN ALL-AFRICAN WAR AGAINST INDISCIPLINE, CORRUPTION AND POLITICAL INEPTITUDE

Ukachukwu Chris Manus

Abstract


No one doubts, as the contemporary social political handwriting on the African walls indicates, that Africa is in the throes of moral crises.  Unethical acts and indiscipline are quite common place in virtually all the countries of the African continent.  Heinous crimes, in fact, do interpenetrate border after border everyday unchecked.  The African society is generally and fast yielding to unspeakable and pernicious sadism.  The article adopts the socio-critical method as represented in the studies of recent African biblical scholars (Abe 1986; Manus 1986, Onah 1991, Olubunmo 1991, Young III, 1993).  It seeks to interpret the gospel of Jesus as recorded in Lk. 9, 46ff and parallels from the perspectives of contemporary African social-political contexts.
