Reading Ephesians 5 in an HIV Epidemic, by Greg Manning

« Go back

A focused reading of Ephesians Chapter 5 is important in the year 2010, because some of the most prominent challenges of the history of Christianity and HIV and AIDS are raised when reading Ephesians 5.  This focused reading is crucial this year specifically, because Ephesians is the Biblical text to be studied by the large international, multi-cultural, multi-lingual gathering of the Lausanne movementin Cape Town, South Africa, which will gather in October, 2010. 

In this paper, Greg Manning considers how reading Ephesians 5 in an HIV epidemic can endanger peoples lives.  He goes on to suggest that the lyrical reading of Ephesians 5 may address many of the risks identified with the reading of this text.
