The use of Scripture: Principles in hermeneutics
The use of Scripture encompasses the total hermeneutical circuit which includes the act of preaching. This context of interaction represents a melting-pot where the exegete's informed reading of the Bible melts into the church-member's naive reading. In this process the text, contextless as it is, is supplied with a context. The reconstruction of context leads to the construction of an applicable meaning of the text. However, the following hermeneutical fallacies have to be avoided: intentional, genetic, referential, affective and the fallacy of misplaced concreteness. The emphasis in the article is laid on a discussion of these fallacies.
