Chapter Summary

This summary of the third part of this book unveils few methodological particularities of paschal hermeneutics. While the pre-Nicene paschal authors regarded the text of Exodus 12 as a theophanic report, their effort concentrated in the way of understanding the spiritual source of this text and the divine mysteries in-scripted within it. The paschal exegete becomes a wise interpreter of biblical parables, like Daniel and Enoch. The exegete is able to decipher the divine mysteries codified in the text of Exodus 12 and other biblical texts referring to God's nature and human salvation. Mystery language involves in its turn a very complex setting. More than simple theorization, it implies a liturgical milieu presupposing ritual gesture, speech, visual perception, and a theology encompassing all these aspects with a net of symbols, connotations, enigmas, and parables sending to the invisible world.

Keywords: divine mysteries; Exodus 12; paschal hermeneutics; pre-Nicene paschal authors
