“There is more to Rufus Pech’s essay than an occasional sidestep into Melanesian theology. Its very limited base is important to show the pervasive influence of the Two Brothers myth. All through the Old Testament the theme of two competing brothers is visible. Abel the younger brother, is slain by Cain. Isaac competes with Ishmael. Things are not very different in the New Testament: A carpenter’s son who eats and drinks is preferred to his cousin, the ascetic offspring of a honourable priest.With this in mind it is refreshing to discover that according to Reverend Pech, the myth of the Two Brothers is like the cornerstone of indigenous Theology, at least in North East New Guinea. Pech’s conclusion helps us truly see the Scriptures in a new light and to come much closer to their central message.”
