Analisis sosioretorik atas kitab Kisah Para Rasul 4:1-31

  • Jakub Santoja


Using sociorethoric analysis of V. K. Robbins and dialogic criticism of M.M. Bakhtin this essay explores the ideological aspects of the narrative elements in Acts of the Apostles 4:1-31. It is considered a further development of previous essays in the methodology of interpretation of the Bible (Journal of Theology Gema Duta Wacana no. 41 and 46).Employing four aspects of sociorethorical analysis (intertextual, intratextual, sociocultural and ideological textures) the author of this essay demonstrates an encounter of sosiopolitical power of the Jewish religious establishment with the divine power of the Holy Spirit working through the disciples of Jesus as they performed miraculous healing ministry at the Jerusalem Temple. This encounter marked the crisis of institutional power of the Temple in light of the charismatic power of the community of Jesus disciples emerging.
