Chapter Summary

This chapter presents and discusses postcolonial approaches to methodological questions. An effort has been made to allow the scholars behind the ideas to 'talk' as much as possible in order to accurately represent their critique of historical critical discourse. Focussing on the critique, rather than beginning the analysis by discussing postcolonial contributions to methodological renewal within biblical studies, will prove beneficial to our purposes since it is in the critique that the episteme becomes visible. A brief overview of the history of New Testament exegesis will introduce the discussion, in order to provide a frame within which the postcolonial critique may be understood. It also presents the critique, categorising the material according to some general patterns that evolve from a close reading of the literature.

Keywords: biblical studies; New Testament exegesis; postcolonial contributions
