Abstract

PILCH, John J.. Insults and face work in the Bible. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2014, vol.70, n.1, pp. 1-8. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v70i1.2655.

Insults play a key role in social interaction in the agonistic culture of the Middle East. This article constructs a social scientific model of social interaction regarding face work and insults and then filters the Gospel of Matthew through that model to highlight the prevalence of insult in the biblical world.
