Abstract

Today's agriculture often relies on pesticides, which cause soil damage and ecosystem imbalances. The use of pesticides is because humans do not feel part of nature. This article aims to explore the example of Jesus Christ as a farmer as written in the Gospel of Matthew and relate it to the cosmological wisdom of Javanese culture. The hope is to build a contextual agricultural theology that respects and maintains the harmony of natural life. The method used is cross-textual reading, which takes positive messages from two texts/contexts that are juxtaposed to construct a form of contextual theology. As a result, contextual agricultural theology emphasizes that farming is worship that encourages humans to preserve the universe with the realization that humans and nature are brothers and sisters created by God. Both must care and protect each other. In that unity, they find themselves united with God. The contextual agricultural theology only recommends organic farming as the right way of agriculture because this model will preserve the natural and human life.
