dc.description.abstract The reading of an ancient text from a contemporary context is discussed. This is done from a hermeneutical standpoint where ancient symbols are viewed as images from the past which are read in relation to present symbols and images. The reading of the text opens up the presenting thereof because of connections made with ancient symbols and metaphors, by means of present symbols and metaphors. The reading and the presenting of the ancient text thus depends on a new understanding of the status of the text – with is primarily based on a symbolic and metaphoric reading of the text. With a symbolic and metaphoric approach the power of symbolism is utilized which could be characterized as an abductive method. A symbolic and metaphoric reading and presenting of the text is then placed in a basic approach which can be used by the Biblical scholar or preacher. en
