Discerning Some Key Elements

image of Exchange

‘Indonesian theology’ has not yet flourished as a theological discourse. Unlike liberation theology, black theology, feminist and womanist theology, or other Asian theologies such as South Korean and Indian theology, there is no consensus on what ‘Indonesian theology’ is. Some theologians have tried to build up this perspective for several decades, yet the result is still far from clear. The intent of this article is to describe several examples of Indonesian readings on the figure of Jesus Christ and to identify several key elements using postcolonial theological analytical frameworks that could contribute to the construction of ‘Indonesian Postcolonial Christology’. After discussing three examples of Christological works, I found three key elements related to three loci of Indonesian context: the reality of oppression, multi-cultural, and multi-faith milieu. In addition, this article will give special attention to how this framework correlates with liberation theology.
