DETERMINING RELATIVE ADEQUACY IN BIBLICAL INTERPRETATION

Ernst M Conradie, Louis C Jonker

Abstract


1. Introduction
Plurality is an inevitable and necessary result of Biblical interpretation. There can be no
single fully adequate interpretation of any Biblical text. This is partly due to the polisemy
inherent in the text itself, but also to the different historical, geographical, and ecclesial
contexts within which the meaning of a text is continuously being appropriated.
Interpretation is necessarily an ongoing task if this implies the need to embody the
significance of the text in and for ever changing circumstances.
