VAN ZYL, H.C.. Reading the New Testament from a theological perspective. Acta theol. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.2, pp.133-145. ISSN 2309-9089.
This article argues that, from the perspective of the faith community, it is not enough to read the Bible only from a "technical" point of view; a theological perspective is also required. Subsequently the article deals with what a theological reading entails: A reader-orientated and a text-orientated view are presented.
Keywords : Reading theologically; Theological hermeneutics; General hermeneutics; New Testament; Reader-orientated interpretation; Text-orientated interpretation.
