Le Sexe et l'occident : Evolution des attitudes et des by Jean-Louis Flandrin

By Jean-Louis Flandrin

C'est une idée très répandue, chez les Occidentaux d'aujourd'hui, que nous avons des difficultés particulières sur le plan sexuel, et qu'elles sont imputables à notre morale traditionnelle, d'essence chrétienne. Mais est-ce en reniant brutalement l. a. morale de nos pères que nous surmonterons nos difficultés ? En réalité, nous ne sommes pas libres de refuser notre héritage. Et plus nous voulons l'ignorer, plus nous en sommes prisonniers.En rendant à ce passé ce qu'on en a censuré, en montrant les rapports qui existaient entre telle perspective ancienne envers los angeles sexualité et tels autres features, abolis ou vivaces, de los angeles tradition occidentale, l'Histoire devrait permettre de réapprécier notre système de valeurs, et par là de surmonter les difficultés présentes.

R. ”21 This attempt, however, to speak about the emotions of Jesus misses the point of the cosmological character of the work. The ideas John works with are primary, their presentation being but a skillful guise. ” Although the mother’s situation is under scrutiny, there is the accompanying spotlight on the hour of the birth of the child, especially so because the real focus is Jesus’ forthcoming resurrection, the hour of his rebirth. Jesus is assuring his disciples that their sorrow over his death will be superseded by their joy when they see him again in his risen state.

A wedding is but a screen to present an incident from the life of Jesus that occasions a miracle to correspond to the one that occurred at creation. By contrast, the focus on an actual sexual encounter when Jesus meets the Samaritan woman is attributable to the explicit interest in the origin of the attraction between the sexes on the sixth day of creation in Genesis 1:26–28. The way John presents Jesus’ sexual encounter is remarkably subtle. ” As in Jesus’ references to his mother as “woman” at Cana and to his coming hour, here he is encountering a woman in the universal sense of womanhood, a product of the original, lower order of creation.

We have, that is, an allegorical discourse that is inspired by the miraculous harvest of day six of creation. 13 The term used in John 4:32 happens to be the one used in Genesis 1:29 about God’s provision of food to serve the needs of all creatures. Also noteworthy is that the language Jesus employs about food has close association with reproduction, the very topic that John has just focused on. In giving expression to the implied transformation of the Samaritans into new beings because of their newly acquired knowledge, Jesus employs the language of sowing and harvesting.
