    Abstract:
    This paper will discuss some possible results of the developing dominance of electronically mediated communication on the practice of theology, focusing on ways digital communications allow, or encourage, us to develop once again features of theologising that were more prominent in earlier times. Peter Horsfield suggested that in some respects digital media return features of orally mediated culture to the modern world. I will play with three metaphors from Jewish life and history as models for changes of practice that the new forms of mediation suggest or even require.
