dc.description.abstractEnglsh: Exegesis should incorporate the basic insights of modern linguistics and literary studies, without ignoring the older grammarians and rhetoricians. Divergent interpretations of a text is possible, but authentic understanding remains within certain parameters. Responsible exegesis needs a multi-dimensional approach. The contribution from various sciences towards the theory of responsible exegesis is discussed. The two most decisive elements in specifying meaning are text and context. Contrary to the voices calling for the death of the author, he remains an important factor. The role of the reader has become increasingly important. The ideal would be a controlled and controllable exegetical procedure. An exegetical programme is proposed to serve as a very basic and flexible vademecum.en_ZA
