dc.description.abstract "The task of exegetical interpretation and also of biblical theology is not to restate the meaning of the Old Testament texts in ways which would be appropriate and meaningful to the ancient Israelites-but to us. As did the Israelites, we can find that the greatest service rendered by tradition is not its retention of answers to old questions-but its inadequacy to provide us with simple solutions to our own new problems. Precisely this challenge, coming at the nexus where the past and the future meet the present, is the locus of revelation." en_US
