Africans are good in oral transmission of truth and knowledge, which enhance a very powerful use of proverbs and adage. Surprisingly, African proverbs have been neglected in Biblical Hermeneutic discourse on this continent. The paper aims to recall our attention to the important value of Proverbs in the knowledge of the Bible and tends to apply the efficacy of African proverbs in teaching biblical truth, first to African and others. This venture will validate the belief that every aspect of African’s life has a religion connotation.
African proverbs’ main concerns relate to every aspect of human life. It is to teach wisdom and moral lessons. Thus they contain, and are used to convey, moral lessons and advice on how to live a good and prosperous life. African proverbs are highly important as a tool for teaching moral and social values, and how to conduct oneself successfully in the business of life. Proverbs have the power to change people’s conduct, because the truths portrayed in them are so plain and unchallengeable that those who understand the morals and advice they contain, feel compelled to conduct their lives in the manner prescribed in the proverbs by the wise elders of old. The work explores some opportunities for using African proverbs as a tool in teaching biblical truth. This experience draws the meaning of the Bible not only to the African readers but every reader.

The objective of this present cross-sectional study was to examine the relationship between faith, healthy lifestyle practices, and health statuses among the Korean Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) study population in Seoul, Korea. The outcomes of the study included the frequency tables to show general information of the Korean SDA study participants including frequency of lifestyle practices and health statuses. Also, a Chi-square test was used to evaluate the association of faith/spirituality with lifestyle practices and health statuses; lifestyle practices with the years of belonging to SDA church; and lifestyle practices with the overall church meeting. Furthermore, a Spearman's correlation test was performed to examine the association of acceptance of SDA health message and lifestyle practice among the Korean SDA church members. The study results indicated that the Korean SDA participants with higher religious/spiritual belief or faith tend to show statistically significant association with abstinence from substance abuse such as alcohol and tobacco and less chances of having hypertension and diabetes. There was also significant relationship between substance abuse and spirituality by negative correlation while Sabbath rest, diet, sleep pattern, water intake, sun exposure and exercise showed significant association with spirituality by a positive correlation. While the Korean SDA study participants showed lower rate of chronic disease and higher rate of healthy lifestyle practice, it was found that the higher level of faith exhibited less disease promoting-risky lifestyle factors, more health promotingprotective lifestyle factors, and better health statuses. Such outcomes were also shown in the Korean-American SDAs study participants residing in Texas studied by the same authors; and both Korean Adventists' practice of healthy lifestyle and achievement of health status were better than a general population living in both USA and Korea.

Individuals in pastoral ministry may be so used to “preaching the word,” offering guidance and exhortation that they may forget when it is necessary to observe silence. Their inner chatter that is motivated by unhealed wounds may be the contributing factor to their failure to effectively use silence. In their view, maintaining quietness in cases of grief may seem to be indicative of the lack of solutions for the presenting problems. This article explores the use of silence in providing spiritual care. It is based on the stories of Hannah's grief and Job's crisis. The responses of Eli and Job's friends in the face of a calamity may be representative of some spiritual care responses.
In order to arrive at the desired end of this article, the strong and weak points of priest Eli and Job's three friends are reviewed. A theological study of 1 Samuel 1:9 to 16, Job 2:11 to 13 and their immediate contexts is engaged in to understand the effect of the silence and some portions of Job are examined to assess the effect of their words. The pitfalls of inappropriate use of silence by Job's friends are also dealt with. The impact of power dynamics at play and inner chatter in both narratives is looked into. The use of power dynamics as it relates to therapeutic silence in providing care is explored. Further to that, current findings on the use of silence in the fields of chaplaincy, spiritual care, psychotherapy and counselling are utilised.

Death is the last experience of all human life, and it is the crisis that comes with the greatest sorrow for the remaining family. Therefore, funeral ceremonies can be solemn and meaningful events and at the same time, minor differences and mistakes can be the cause of great conflicts among family members or community members. Korean society has recognized 'burial' as the main interment method. Since 1990, however, 'cremation' has been increasing due to environmental and economic causes.
In Korean Christian society, the idea that 'burial' is biblical and consistent with Christian tradition has been dominant for a long time, but theological discussion about interment methods are actively proceeding according to the influence of social change. On the other hand, the Adventist Church in Korea has not been discussing funeral culture. The purpose of this study is to collect opinions regarding deaths and funerals of Korean Adventist Church members for further theological discussions.
According to the findings of this study, Korean Adventists prefer 'cremation', like other Korean people. However, since the preference for 'burial' is still high in the older age group, the study suggested that on the denominational level dialogue between the generations should be coordinated with the concept of interment methods and prepare a ritual manual, funeral facilities, and sites for 'cremation'.

5Archaeological Finds at Shiloh and their Theological/Missiological Implications

The relationship between archaeology and the Bible has long been debated, leading to conflicting viewpoints on historicity and chronology. Scholars from the diachronic and low chronology perspective consider Israel's history as either a myth or a later redaction from different accounts/sources. Those from the synchronic and high chronology perspective garner a range of factual relationships. This article which focuses on Shiloh has shown how the archaeological finds from the tell help in understanding the historicity of the Bible, especially the account of Israel's statement at Shiloh (cf. 1 Sam 4) in the later part of the Late Bronze Age and early period of the Iron Age I. Missiologically, archaeological finds contribute to understanding the biblical narratives and how best the Bible is used for mission. Also, by interlacing the biblical and materialistic history and the reliability of the material culture and findings of Shiloh in the OT, mission can be projected on a more promising way.

The subject of human suffering in general and that of the innocent person in particular is one of the most enigmatic issues in Scripture. Yet the concept of suffering constitutes one of the fulcrums of the Christian faith. Throughout the history of humanity, the question of innocent suffering seems to have left no culture indifferent. This study theologically reflects on the suffering of the man Job whose experience epitomizes all innocent suffering ever endured by mortals. The investigation has revealed that the concept of innocent suffering was not widely accepted in the ancient Near East since suffering was generally imputed to an antecedent offence. Leaning on Job's ordeal, it is argued that the roots of a believer's suffering are not always to be found in some antecedent sins committed by the sufferer. Thus, innocent suffering as depicted in the life of Job should be understood in the context of the ongoing Great Controversy.

Honor and shame have been widely considered as core social values of the Ancient Near Eastern world, which is the habitat for the biblical accounts. Being rich with the usage of the Hebrew words for shame and honor in the context of worship, the Psalter is explored in this paper to study the meaning of biblical worship in the light of the shame-and-honor conceptual framework.
