MODELLE VAN SKRIFUITLEG: SAMEHANG EN VERSKIL

H L Bosman

Abstract


This paper is a discussion and an elaboration of J Barton’s Reading the Old Testament. Method in Biblical Study (1984). The intention is to point out that the various models of exegesis are not a mere random collection of techniques, but that coherent sense can be made if they are understood against the background of literary criticism and the study of literature in general. It is no longer possible to determine how the Bible should be read, but there are a number of possibilities how the Bible could be understood. The paper concludes that exegesis has literary, historical and theological components and the success of Biblical Studies will depend on how it does justice to all three components.
