The history of interpretation of the narrative of the Canaanite woman in Matthew 15:21-28 is marked by diverse and contested interpretations. Some detest perceiving the Canaanite woman as a dog, and for others this is a natural characterisation. In this thesis I wanted to explore the interpretation of Matt. 15:21-28 in a Norwegian context and ask questions about the consequences of these interpretations and which interest they serve.
Therfore I am doing an intersectional and contextual analysis of the interpretations of Matt. 15:21-28 The Canaanite woman in the two Norwegian journals Luthersk Kirketidende and Nytt Norsk Kirkeblad. How do the analytical tools and the findings of the analysis challenge biblical interpretation in the Norwegian context?
