n Ekklesiastikos Pharos - The as framework for an ecotheological reading of Matthew 5-7 : research article




This article considers the ecojustice implications of Matthew 5-7 using the Habel six-principle ecojustice paradigm and the basic eco-feminist hermeneutic of suspicion and retrieval, in addition to traditional exegesis. Such an approach compels exegetes to suspect that there may be anthropocentric, patriarchal or andro-centric biases embedded in the biblical text. Matthew 5-7 reveals an ecotheological ethic that holds real promise for the aversion of further ecological injustice through human agency by addressing humans' deep-seated attitudes, aspirations and actions. Based on the regnum Dei, this ethic has five other related dimensions that are put in perspective.
