Karel Deurloo als exegeet

Activity: Lecture / PresentationAcademic


This paper, in Dutch, gives an outline of the influence prof. Karel A. Deurloo, founding father of the 'Amsterdam School of Theology', had as an exegete. It sketches how, in his painstaking concentration on structure, keywords and meaning, almost completely leaving aside the historical critical analysis, he was a forerunner of the so-called rhetorical analysis. While this type of exegesis was often scorned as being 'unscientific' because it had a great deal of attention for the kerygmatic character of biblical texts, the lecturer tries to show that this criticism is not justified. On the contrary, Deurloo's exegesis can claim to be more scholarly than many other schools because of the larger scope it encompasses.
