Resumen

KEENER, Craig S.. Cultural comparisons for healing and exorcism narratives in Matthew's Gospel. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2010, vol.66, n.1, pp. 1-7. ISSN 2072-8050.

Majority World readings of Matthew (and the Gospels generally) often help us to appreciate the very sorts of stories that seem most alien to readers in the West: stories of unusual cures and exorcisms of hostile spirits. Rather than simply allegorising these narratives, many Majority World readers treat them as models for experiencing healing and deliverance. Accounts of these experiences appear in a wide variety of cultures; in addition to a range of published sources, the article includes some material based on the author's interviews with people claiming first-hand experiences of this nature in the Republic of Congo. Such readings invite a more sympathetic hearing of some Gospel narratives than they often receive in the West.

Palabras clave : Africa; Africans; cross-cultural; exorcism; Gospels; healing.
