CILLIERS, J. Views on and use of Scripture: Perspectives on a hermeneutics of expectancy. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.29, n.1, pp.62-76. ISSN 2074-7705.
In this article the intrinsic relationship between our views on and our use of scripture is proposed. This relationship is described in terms of two basic components of the reformed understanding of scripture, namely the accommodative and performative nature thereof. This is followed by an exposition of two fundamental misunderstandings pertaining to the abovementioned components as well as some suggestions for the profiling of a hermeneutics of expectancy.
