Die verhaal van die Samaritaanse vrou in Johannes 4:1-30, binne die konteks van die Ou Nabye Oosterse kulturele verwagtinge en die simboliese gebruik van water as 'n goue stroom wat vloei deur die vierde evangelie
Thesis (MDiv (Practical Theology and Missiology))--University of Stellenbosch, 2007.
The post-Apartheid South African community is still recognized by dualisms between white and black, rich and poor, public and private, men and women. In this study specific focus has been placed on John 4 which tells the story about the conversation between Jesus and the Samaritan woman with the aim to create a lens through which we can address and breach modern dualism. The focus of the study is the symbolic use of water in the text where it is literary-theologically broken up in order for John to use Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman, to firstly indicate and secondly expose gender, social, political and cultural boundaries in the Ancient-Near East.
