Jesus Teaches a Samaritan Woman

CHAPTER ONE

1.1 GENERAL INTRODUCTION

Discourse analysis has been defined differently in numerous studies carried out over the years in the discipline. According to Brown and Yule (1983:1), “the analysis of language in use is necessarily the analysis of discourse.” Stubb (1993:1) defines ambiguity as the term used to characterize discourse analysis. speech analysis, according to him, “refers to primarily the linguistic analysis of naturally occurring connected spoken or written discourse, but the term itself is very ambiguous.” Cooks (1996:1) contends that “discourse analysis is not concerned with language alone, even though language is its core focus. Additionally, the idea of communication is examined. Scholars have used discourse analysis to examine a wide range of literary works. Cooks (1996) analyzes advertisements using discourse analysis. Woods (2006) looks at the discourses of politics, law, advertising, medicine, and education, in that order. It is used in Laniru (2010)’s “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” a Nigerian television series. With the help of some pragmatic elements and some basic discourse analysis elements—such as turn-taking, exchange structure, context, participants, and so on—this investigation aims to go beyond discourse analysis and make explicit the implicit aspects of the interaction between our participants, Jesus and the Samaritan woman, as it is described in John 4 of the Bible. We anticipate that this will provide more context and understanding for the discussion.

1.2     PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

One of the most sought-after books in the world today is the Holy Bible. Perhaps the most cited name in the cosmos is Jesus Christ, whose name or image is the main topic of discussion from Genesis to Revelation. Nonetheless, a number of individuals, both inside and outside of the religious community, have given different interpretations to many of the lessons, discussions, and activities he took part in.  An attempt is made to demonstrate how discourse analysis components can be utilized to interpret facts and background information from the Bible using a discourse analysis of Jesus’ interaction with the Samaritan woman.

1.3SCOPE AND DELIMITATION

This research seeks to undertake a discourse analysis of Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman. It attempts to show how best discourse and some pragmatic elements can be used to decode the meaning of conversation in the Holy Bible. Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman has been selected from several Biblical conversations just as a sample among others.

1.4   JUSTIFICATION

Some researchers have conducted investigations into the Holy Bible using discourse        analysis. For instance, Balogun’s “A Discourse Analysis of selected parables of Jesus Christ (2010)”. However, as at the period of this study to the best of our knowledge, no researcher has used discourse analysis to analyze Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman.

Moreover, “A discourse analysis of Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman” will not only add to the knowledge bank but it will show how effectively discourse analysis can be used in decoding meaning  in conversations in the Holy Bible which has been described by many as being more spiritual than psychological.
