READING JONAH MULTIDIMENSIONALLY: A MULTIDIMENSIONAL READING STRATEGY FOR BIBLICAL INTERPRETATION

Louis Jonker

Abstract


In this article I will concentrate on the following: Firstly, I will explain what I mean by ‘multidimensional exegesis’.  Secondly, I will formulate a multidimensional ‘map’ that provides the possibility of ‘plotting’ various exegetical-hermeneutical strategies and their interrelationships.  Thirdly, I will describe the twofold reading strategy necessitated by multidimensional exegesis.  In particular, I will elaborate on ‘competent reading’.  Fourthly, as an example, I will venture a multidimensional reading of the Book of Jonah.

Keywords


Jonah; multidimensional reading; biblical interpretation; multidimensional exegesis
