Abstract





Matthew 22:32 contains a tradition of mentioning the God of Israel which was no longer popular in the time of Jesus. That tradition is often called Theos patros, the God of the ancestorsthe God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. In a dialogue between Jesus and several Sadducees about the resurrection of the dead, Jesus revived the tradition. Studies concerning that text, however, seems to overlook such tradition of mentioning God. If Jesus implicitly states that the ancestors of Israel lived, what kind of life did Jesus mean? This article attemps to answer the above question by considering God with Us as the main theme and Rhetoric of Fighting Leadership as the essence of this gospel rhetoric. Both become what is often referred to as the Hermeneutical Framework.Matthew 22:32 contains a tradition of mentioning the God of Israel which was no longer popular in the time of Jesus.

Matius 22:32 memuat sebuah tradisi penyebutan Allah Israel yang tidak lagi populer pada zaman Yesus. Tradisi ini sering disebut Theos patros, yakni Allah leluhurAllah Abraham, Allah Ishak, dan Allah Yakub. Dalam sebuah dialog antara Yesus dengan beberapa orang Saduki tentang kebangkitan orang mati, Yesus menghidupkan kembali tradisi tersebut. Namun pesan penggunaan penyebutan Allah tersebut tampaknya kurang mendapat perhatian. Bila dalam teks ini Yesus secara implisit menyatakan bahwa para leluhur Israel hidup, hidup yang macam apakah yang dimaksudkan oleh Yesus? Tulisan ini berusaha menjawab pertanyaan di atas dengan mempertimbangkan Allah Bersama Kita sebagai tema utama serta Retorika Pertarungan Kepemimpinan sebagai hakikat retorika Injil ini. Keduanya menjadi apa yang sering disebut sebagai sebagai bingkai kerja penafsiran (Hermeneutical Framework).
