Week 5, The Implications of the Text of Ester for the African Women’s Struggle for Liberation in South Africa, Itumeleng J. Mosala, (Sugirtharajah

October 29, 2007

“An oppressed Bible oppresses and a liberated Bible liberates” (140). Mosala makes this closing comment, in summarizing why it is important for a critical biblical hermeneutic to address “political issues affecting nations, women, races, age groups, and classes” (140).  Mosala in making this appeal to go  beyond traditional scholarship, produces an analysis of the book of Ruth, which reflects this hermeneutical approach towards liberation. Mosala’s comments about the patriarchal undertones found in Ruth, support gender oppression and exploitation, were most striking.
