WHAT IS BIBLICAL MEDIA CRITICISM? A MEDIACRITICAL READING OF LUKE 9:51-56

J. A. Loubser

Abstract


In Luke 9:51-56 Jesus rebukes his disciples for wishing revenge on the Samaritans
for their lack of hospitality. The paper investigates the rich residual orality in the
text and the probable transformations that occurred when this narrative was
recorded and translated. A review of the available communications technology at
the time of text production is followed by an examination of explicit and implicit
data on orality and literacy. Some exciting communicative and social aspects of the
text are explored. The paper concludes with a brief reflection on the relation
between transmediation and the ethics of interpretation.
