Resumen

DUBE, Zorodzai. The Ethiopian eunuch in transit: A migrant theoretical perspective. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2013, vol.69, n.1, pp. 1-7. ISSN 2072-8050.

Biblical scholars tend to see the Ethiopian eunuch and court official through the eyes of Philip the evangelist, which is also what the author of the text wants us to do. However, the narrative about the Ethiopian court official is also a story about the experiences of an ancient traveller, and as such, the story invokes the tales of contemporary migrants. In this study, I explore how the story about a sojourning court official intersects with contemporary immigration and identity issues. My study demonstrates how the travelling court official can be used as a figure to think with and how his story mirrors challenges faced by migrant workers today.
