THE PRESENCE OF WOMEN IN PARABLES: AN AFROCENTRIC WOMANIST PERSPECTIVE

Ncumisa Manona

Abstract


This article will illustrate the presence of women in parables as found in African
tradition culture and in the synoptic gospels. Such an illustration will be qualified by
examining concurrently the centrality of women in parables and the roles they play. It
is important to reiterate that the centrality of women in parables depends wholly on
the author’s intent. In these parables women are either blamed or praised. Toward
the end of this article, the authorial view on women in parables will be challenged.
