BIBLICAL INTERPRETATION IN ESTABLISHED BIBLE STUDY GROUPS: A CHRONICLE OF A REGIONAL RESEARCH PROJECT
AbstractInformal discussions lead to cooperation in research During 1995 a number of Biblical scholars from the Universities of the Western Cape and Stellenbosch came together for some informal discussions on the interpretation of the Bible. With the occasional participation of scholars from other fields (e.g. Johan Degenaar and Paul Cilliers from Philosophy) topics such as "Multidimensional interpretation", ''Textuality and Intertextuality" were discussed. From these informal discussions surfaced the desire to participate on a regional basis in a joint research project that would investigate the reading strategies people use when they read the Bible.
