  • PGR De Villiers
Keywords: hermeneutical principle, hermeneutiese beginsel, Openbaring, Revelation


This essay investigates with examples from the book Revelation a new perspective that has been developed in recent historical investigation of New Testament texts as an important extension to and correction of the historical critical approach. It analyses experience as a fundamental dimension of biblical texts that explains the nature of biblical texts as religious texts in a more adequate manner. It delineates experiential perspectives on the concept of “history” and then shows how experience offers a significant hermeneutical key for the interpretation of texts.
