Abstract:

"This dissertation attempts to critically analyse the effect of ideology on the text of Amos 5 andhow this impacts on hermeneutics. It begins with a look at the historical-political-sociologicalsituations of Amos' time. It also looks at ideology and the text and the effect of ideology bothon the writer and the interpreter. Chapter 3 and 4 are exegetical and rhetorical readings of thetexts of Amos 5. Chapter 4 focuses on the concept of justice and righteousness in Amos 5and also in the entire book of Amos. Lastly, Chapter 5 looks at the concept of justice andrighteousness and its contemporary relevance.In course of the study, it was discovered that time and experience play an important rolein the Bible experience. Further, it was discovered that both the writer and the interpreter areconsiderably under the influence of ideology. None is exempt from it. This study therefore isabout the struggles that a modern interpreter encounter in course of doing biblicalinterpretation and application. Since the texts is an ancient and was written at a time differentfrom now. It implies therefore that contemporary interpreter has to interpret the text honestlyin other for biblical message to be relevant to the present."
