Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with ramifications of narrative positioning for the apocalypse, a requisite for the understanding of the reader's perspective. Positioning gives the reader an active role. It is a given that affects the process of the reading experience and the cognitive apprehension of the artefact. It deals with how positioning plays a role in identifying positions of adherence and contrast in the cognitive experience of attaining meaning. God's agency is introduced in the first verse, he performs the action of giving, releasing the disclosure of Jesus Christ. The narrative situation implies the presence of God and of Jesus Christ. Since god's disclosure takes form in language and in narrative modality, readers need to bear in mind that language does not directly reach their thoughts but addresses their cognitive environment.

Keywords: God; Jesus Christ; narrative positioning
