Name Tutor Course Date The Concept of Contextualization Introduction According to Biblical interpretation and translation contextualization can be defined as the process of giving meaning as a manner of interpreting the surrounding environment within which an action or a text has been executed (Erricker and Jane 5). Shoki Coe was the first person to use the term “contextualization theology” when he claimed that the three principles championed by Van-Anderson were not tangible enough to address the context of his Taiwan native (Erricker and Jane 7). The general use of the term can be used to imply inculturation or indigenization. It also tends to incorporate the realities of secularity technology contemporary issues and the struggle for justice. Contextualization widens the concept of culture so as to include political social and economic inquiries. Taking such a perspective makes it possible to understand the culture in a more flexible and dynamic ways. It would be possible for the church to understand it better. The concept has been applied and has turned to be fruitful in several instances thereby drawing many people closer to God. Works Cited Erricker Clive and Jane Erricker.
