Event Title

P-28 A Trifold Approach to Biblical Intertextuality

Start Date

3-2-2018 2:30 PM

Description

Due to the many and varied styles of literature represented in the Bible, the intertextual method—a hermeneutical method which compares Scripture with Scripture, within both a single book and the entire canon—cannot be reduced to a single approach without glossing over certain technical and literary characteristics of the text. I propose three different, yet compatible, approaches to intertextuality: Word-based, theme- or concept-based, and passage-based. Each approach is tailored for application to a particular type of passage in order to maximize the efficiency of the intertextual method and minimize the threat of damaging the original meaning of the text.
