Abstract

One of the prolific writers in the discipline of African Biblical Hermeneutics is the Nigerian Old Testament (OT) scholar, Professor Tuesday David Adamo. In his tireless efforts to unlock the OT reality for African contexts, persuaded by his commitment to decolonise the subject of Biblical Studies, Adamo has made successful efforts to reflect on the African presence in the Old Testament. The present study seeks to engage Adamo’s concept of African Biblical hermeneutics in order to investigate whether the author sufficiently discussed the theme of gender in his discourses.  This research attempts to respond to the following two main questions in view of Adamo’s discourses: (1) In Adamo’s concerted effort of confirming the presence of Africa and Africans in the Hebrew Bible, does the woman question feature? (2) If so, how does Adamo navigate the question?
