Abstract

PILCH, John. The wisdom of Ben Sira in MENA cultural context: A cultural topical index. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2016, vol.72, n.4, pp.1-10. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v72i4.3212.

The biblical Books of Proverbs and Ben Sira (Sirach; Ecclesiasticus) yield no narrative continuity or logical outline. They are simply collections. The best way to interpret these books is with the aid of a topical index. Most topical indexes are based on English (or another language) translation. This article proposes a tentative topical index reflecting Middle East North African culture and its values. It will serve as the outline for a full length commentary already in process.
