APPROPRIATING THE DECALOGUE ACCORDING TO AFRICAN PROVERBS

Hendrik L. Bosman

Abstract


This article argues the following: (i) there is a close but neglected relationship
between “torah” and “hokmah” in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and this should
be reflected in the interpretation of the Decalogue. (ii) African proverbs/ wisdom
can be utilized as a hermeneutical sounding board for the appropriation of the
Decalogue in African contexts.
