The Holy Spirit in Luke-Acts.
THE ROLE OF THE READER
What is the role of the reader in the interpretation of the biblical text? Can he create meaning, or is it the text itself that has the last word and determines the right meaning? This study investigates the role of the reader in the exegesis of passages on the Holy Spirit in Luke and Acts.
Using a model of Umberto Eco, the author examines how three writers from different denominational backgrounds – Max M.B. Turner, Robert P. Menzies and William S. Kurz – are personally involved in the interpretation of these passages.
