The focus in this issue is on aspects of the New Testament interpretation.

Andries van Aarde discusses the relationship between ‘resonance’ and ‘context’ in order to move beyond the confines of a structural approach. Johannes Louw looks again at the difference in the time of Jesus’ crucifixion according to Mark and to John, and argues that the theory of two chronological systems does not solve the problem. Sam Fourie and Jacques Rousseau offer a detailed analysis of the concept ‘unity’ in John 13-17, and discuss its meaning for the situation in South Africa. Pieter Craffert interprets the Damascus episode in terms of Berger and Luckmann’s model of conversion, and point out the implications of such a move for the interpretation of Galatians 1 and the chronology of Paul.

A monograph by Wilhelm Wuellner entitled Hermeneutics and Rhetorics will appear shortly as a special number of Scriptura. This promises to be an interesting study, and may be ordered directly from Scriptura, Department of Biblical Studies, University of Stellenbosch.
