Title Exploring God's revelation in myths of bi lauf neno on church’s mission perspective of dawan ethnic-timor, NTT
 
Creator Obe, Alexius Poto
 
Subject Keywords: Rice / corn seeds, ritual ceremonies, inculturation, Contextual Theology, Myth Bi Lauf Neno
 
Description This paper aims to offer an alternative in contextual theology by utilizing mythical stories. For those who have myths, myths are sacred stories related to their origins. Their identity is shaped by this myth. The myth that the author examines is the myth of the origin of rice and maize through the body of a woman who developed among the Dawan East Timorese Tribe. The myth of Bi Lauf Neno can be said to be a preparation for the Bible, in which there are the seeds of words according to the repertoire of Christian culture in the Bible. The story of Jesus and His gospel is vaguely found in this Bi Lauf Neno myth. In this discussion, we will find things that are similar to the gospel story, but there are still major differences: Jesus is a historical figure, He is truly God and man, as close to God as His Father; Bi Lauf Neno is a mythical figure, even though he claims to be from Uis Neno, he is not Uis Neno (God).
