The wisdom of Ben Sira in MENA cultural context: A cultural topical index

Hts Theological Studies 72 (4):1-10 (2016)

Abstract
The biblical Books of Proverbs and Ben Sira yield no narrative continuity or logical outline. They are simply collections. The best way to interpret these books is with the aid of a topical index. Most topical indexes are based on English translation. This article proposes a tentative topical index reflecting Middle East North African culture and its values. It will serve as the outline for a full length commentary already in process.
