The purpose of this study is to find out whether or not the concept of עִס in the Old Testament is the same as it is used in Minjung theology. Therefore the first part of this thesis will deal with outside influences, such as secular theology, the theology of hope, liberation theology, process theology, and theology of history on Minjung theologians, specifically on these three: Jung Choon Kim, Hee Suh Moon, and Joon Suh Park. All three insist that the origin of Israel was the Habiru. Therefore the origin of עִס (Israel) in the Old Testament will also be treated. The second part of this thesis will determine whether עִס refers to a religious entity or a social entity, since Minjung theologians maintain that it refers only to a social entity. Finally, an evaluation will be given. Certain points of contact between the concept of עִס and Minjung understandings of it will be presented.
