What is the globalization of hermeneutics? According to Blomberg there are five topics that consistently recur with greater frequency than any others in biblical studies: liberation theology, feminism, economics, religious pluralism, and the contextualization of the gospel. Blomberg's goal in this essay is to suggest that a lot can be learned from interpreters of a wide variety of cultures if only there is a willingness to read expositions that might otherwise be ignored and raise questions that might otherwise never be explored. Texts used as illustrations include Matthew 2, John 3, John 4, Romans 13, James, Philemon, and Revelation 13.
