Example text

Barclay, Jews in the Mediterranean Diaspora: From Alexander to Trajan (323 BCE – 117 CE) (Berkley & London: University of California Press, 1999; 1996) p. 242. 15 Ibid. 16 Pompey brought the region under Roman control in 63 BC and the Jews in general lost political control. They were given the right, however, to exercise semi-independent rule in the Kingdoms of Herod (37-34 BC), Archelus (4 BC-6 AD) and Agrippa (41-44 AD). According to Barclay the concept of the Jewish ‘homeland’ and ‘diaspora’ in this period becomes quite difficult to distinguish.

38 SECTION FOUR SUMMATION: THE BIBLICAL CONTEXT AND THE ‘IMAGE OF GOD’ From Middleton’s and Westermann’s exegetical and inter-textual analysis an understanding of the idea of the image of God seems to be linked with the notion of rule. Human beings are called to exercise rule on God’s behalf in creation, but not only to rule, they are to rule analogically to God’s rule, to rule in accordance with the covenant to ‘shepherd’. In this way, human beings are viewed to be like (or represent) God in exercising royal power on earth – they have received the gift of sharing in (relating to) and participating in God’s royal right to rule.

In the modern period this has become a question of exceeding importance especially concerning the ecological care of the planet – given the fears of rising carbon dioxide levels. This ecological situation has resulted from what many hold as improper care and rule/ shepherding of the environment. Humans have, in other words, lost respect for the wonder of creation. An understanding of what analogous Divine rule means requires a comprehensive reflection on the responsibility that accompanies that rule, this is not immediately explicated in Genesis chapter one, but in later Old Testament literature God lays down commandments/ laws in order to define right relations.
