Multicultural Christology

A Korean Immigrant Perspective

by Chun-Hoi Heo (Author)
©2005 Thesis 254 Pages

Summary

This book explores the multicultural and multilingual dimensions of Jesus’ life and ministry in first century Galilee. The study focuses on Jesus’ encounters with ethnic minorities in the New Testament and the so-called «Mission Instructions» (Luke 10:2-16), which show Jesus as a reconciler of cultures. The author connects the multicultural-multilingual life and ministry of Jesus to the life of Korean immigrants in the North American context. Jesus is presented as the Christ with whom they can identify in the context of their painful marginalisation.
This book is essential for those who try to develop a theology for ethnic minorities in the present multicultural world.
