THE RECEPTION OF MATTHEW IN AFRICA

Abstract


The typical critical issues concerning the interpretation of Matthew do not occur that often in the reception of Matthew in Africa.  The issues addressed are especially contextual matters such as liberation and the relevance of God’s kingdom for society and politics.  In the process attention is given to the relationship between Jesus and rural society, in inculturation in the context of Jesus and in Africa, poverty and oppression, martyrdom, dreams, the cosmic implications of the Gospel, marriage customs in Africa, the priestly commitment to the people of God in the local context, love and other values, the church and Christology.
