Postcolonial Discipleship of Embodiment

Full Product Description

In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus asks the disciples, 'Do you not yet understand?' Rereading the Gospel through an Asian and Asian American feminist hermeneutics, Choi interprets this 'understanding' as phronesis (embodied wisdom) rather than knowledge of Jesus' identity. Discipleship means embodying the mystery. Amidst the Roman imperial construction of the colonized body, colonial subjects perceive, or are haunted by, Jesus' body as phantasmic (6:45-52), consumed (7:24-30), and passive (7:31-37). The mystery of Jesus' transcorporeal body disrupts the imperial presence, while conveying the subjectivity of othered bodies that are invisible, placeless, and voiceless in both ancient and contemporary postcolonial contexts. This postcolonial feminist rereading of Mark calls for an ethical relation with the single figure of the crucified for continued life-giving and meaning-making.

Postcolonial Discipleship of Embodiment by Jin-Young Choi was published by Palgrave Macmillan in August 2015. The ISBN for Postcolonial Discipleship of Embodiment is 9781137541543.
