Chapter Summary

This chapter sets aside the theory of text processing and explains what the author means by terminology as a window on tradition. Theoretically it argues that the words, the expressions, forming the explicit textbase are the windows through which we have to look in order to recognise parts of those frames which suit the text. When reading texts which originated within first century Hellenistic Judaism, the exegete must be familiar with the frames that were presupposed by the writer. The chapter illustrates that even from the perspective of modern theories which explain how text processing functions, this work still has to be done in order to understand the text synchronically. Text-immanent semantic approaches which interpret the text only in terms of the discourse world reconstructed on basis of the explicit textbase, may be a starting point.

Keywords: explicit textbase; Hellenistic Judaism
