The research is mainly on digging into the history of the metaphor of “Nursing Mother” for Jesus in Church History timeline. I am laying down church history periods with key church father figures. The idea is to research their writings, find out what they said about the metaphor if any. How this metaphor was interpreted in those days.
Note: 1. It is not that all the mentioned church fathers wrote something on the metaphor, “Jesus as a Nursing mother.” Research on, at least, 2 church fathers. It may also happen that at a given age the metaphor of “nursing mother” was not a subject of debate.
2. As you can see, I am trying to be out of the feminist debate of whether God is Father or Mother. The emphasis is on the use of “Nursing Mother” as a metaphor of Jesus Christ’s love, compassion, care and protection.
