Spring Convocation: Dr. Seung Ai Yang, presenting, "Empowering Solidarity: Matthean Story of Mary and Magoi"
Popular Christian interpretations have often identified the magoi (translated “wise men” in most English Bible) in Matthew 2:1-12 as three kings from three different places in Asia such as India, Persia, and Arabia, with three different skin colors signifying three continents of Asia, Africa, and Europe, who came to worship Jesus. From a postcolonial feminist perspective, this popular picture is androcentric, kyriarchal, and imperialistic. In place of the oppressive interpretation, a postcolonial feminist imagination can find an inspiring story about empowering politics of solidarity among different women in the Matthean narrative of Mary and magoi.
