Komparasi Pemikiran Yunani dan Yesus Kristus tentang Perempuan

Grace Emilia


Abstract: This article explores the views on woman by comparing Greek-rooted thoughts prevailed upon the the Greek, Romans, and Jewish antiquities with Jesus Christ’s perspective, especially those written in the Synoptic Gospel and the Gospel of John. This study uses the multimethod research to gain a more thorough understanding about the issue. The integrative literature review is used to get insight on Greek philosophy’s perspective on woman and its influences on the thoughts existed in the Romans and Jewish antiquities. Meanwhile, the narrative-analysis method is used to gain understanding about Jesus Christ’s perspective on woman. This study concludes that the Son of God opposes various Greek-rooted thoughts on woman and shows that woman is God’s worthy creature and the heir of His promises for humanity.
