Abstract

VAN DER MERWE, Dirk. Reading the Bible in the 21st century: Some hermeneutical principles: Part 2. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.36, n.1, pp.01-07. ISSN 2074-7705.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/VE.V36I1.1392.

This essay is to be an extension of the essay 'Reading the Bible in the 21st century: Some hermeneutical principles: Part 1'. Two more 'hermeneutical aspects' are proposed and discussed in this essay: the aspects of spirituality and embodiment. These two aspects are presented in this essay to supplement and compliment the hermeneutical process. A few remarks on the idiosyncrasy of texts pave the way for the legitimate exploitation of spiritualities (lived experiences) embedded in biblical texts which should be regarded as an addition to 'biblical hermeneutics' and which have to serve as a catalyst for the embodiment of the 'reading texts'.
