Schriftuur, natuur en cultuur: over de noodzaak van hermeneutische regels

  • H. van den Belt

Samenvatting

Hermeneutical controversies often have to do with the tension between the text of the Bible on the one hand and what can be called ‘general revelation’ and ‘contextuality’ on the other hand. This article reflects on both tensions, argues for a positive-critical hermeneutical attitude towards nature – as created by God – and culture. Hermeneutical rules should not lead to a rationalist objectivation of Scripture, but still are necessary to avoid arbitrariness in explaining and applying Scripture today.
