Abstract


Abstract. Natural restoration poses a current theological challenge. Readings that support adaptation, mitigation and recovery efforts are the purpose of writing articles to respond to these challenges. The method used in reading the selected text, namely Genesis 26:12-33, is eco hermeneutic as proposed by Norman Charles Habel. The results showed that Gerar water was compassionate toward Isaac, his family and animals as refugee in the Philistines during that time of famine. However, water stopped serving Isaac because Isaac became unfriendly to him by exploiting him when he was starving. From there Isaac was aware of Water's sovereignty in his encounter with the wells of Sitnah, Esek and Rehoboth. At the same time, Isaac realized that God as the source of Water defends Water in an effort to maintain its intrinsic value for all people fairly.

Abstrak. Pemulihan alam menjadi tantangan berteologi saat ini. Pembacaan yang mendukung upaya adaptasi, mitigasi dan pemulihan komunitas alam menjadi tujuan dari penulisan dari artikel untuk merespon tantangan tersebut. Metode yang digunakan dalam pembacaan teks terpilih adalah eco hermeneutic sebagaimana yang digagas oleh Norman Charles Habel. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa Air Gerar berbela rasa dengan Ishak, keluarga dan hewan-hewannya sebagai pengungsi di Filistin selama masa kelaparan saat itu. Namun Air berhenti melayani Ishak karena Ishak menjadi tidak ramah kepadanya dengan mengeksploitasi dirinya saat kelaparan. Dari situ Ishak sadar akan kedaulatan Air dalam perjumpaan dengan sumur Sitnah, Esek dan Rehobot, sekaligus menyadari Tuhan sebagai sumber Air membela Air dalam upayanya mempertahankan nilai intrinsiknya bagi semua orang secara adil.
