A MYSTICAL READING OF PAUL
AbstractThe methodological diversity in biblical hermeneutics that has taken place during the last few decades has effected a shift of such magnitude, that scholars are still catching their breath. New methods of interpreting scripture continue to come to the fore. There is a major move from a mechanistic to a holistic paradigm, from within which scripture emerges as life-giving and transformative. Constructive or ecological postmodernism contributes to the revalorization of the aesthetic, the mythological and the mystical. A mystical reading of Paul, with particular reference to his understanding of the term in Christ elucidates the value of this new, yet ancient heuristic tool.
