An Initial Reading of Luke 7:36-50: Anti-Asian hate and Intersectional Interpretation – Mary Foskett
Intersectional analysis can make a key contribution to Asian American biblical interpretation. With its critical examination of the multiple interacting systems and structures of oppression and privilege that shape the contexts in which communities live, intersectional analysis leads Asian American hermeneutics to illumine multiple dimensions of biblical texts and interpretation as well as the complex structures that shape Asian American communities and experience. The essay illustrates intersectional Asian American interpretation by initiating a reading of Luke 7:36 -50 which takes as its starting point the rise of anti-Asian hate in the United States unleashed by the COVID-19 global pandemic.
