He claimed to have discovered this reason in the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, according to which a Christian could exercise his faith by using the message of the Gospels as an occasion to repeatedly choose his own self-authenticity, to seek over and over again "in the existential moment" and to grasp his own "authentic self" as a goal which he can never expect actually to achieve. In a talk I recently gave to Church Educational System teachers, I urged that “the fact that something is true is not always a justification for communicating it.” A letter published in the New York Times Magazine described my counsel as “contempt for the truth.” (Feb. 9, 1986, p. 86.)

Suggesting that revisionist criticism represents the latest and best scholarly and archaeological research on biblical origins today. We need to be at least as concerned about their historical situation as about the situation of Joseph in Egypt. For the fact is that truth is differently presented and expressed in the various types of historical writing, in prophetical and poetical texts, and in other forms of literary expression." [8] Martin Luther, Zwingli, John Calvin and other leaders of the Protestant Reformation believed strongly in a literal interpretation of scripture. [9] Luther wrote, "The Holy Ghost is the all-simplest writer that is in heaven or earth; therefore his words can have no more than one simplest sense, which we call the scriptural or literal meaning." [10] The Reformers rejected the church tradition of the Roman Catholic Church as well as the allegorical interpretations associated with it.

This conflict has the function of breaking down automatism of perception and occurs simultaneously on the many levels of a work of art ... An anthology of major critics from the 18th century to the middle of the 20th century. Signed … Most of the girls followed instructions. Christians don’t need to be worried by this. We don’t have to conclude that the Gospels give specious accounts of Jesus’ life; we don’t have to assume that engaging with historical Jesus scholarship means that will we slide all the way down the slippery-slope and conclude that Jesus was never raised from the dead.

I cite the familiar locus of the “hard” scholarship, the center of any program of advanced studies in English which intends to initiate the student heroically, and once for all, into the historical discipline. The originating emotion still clots the lines or, in striving for originality, the work becomes muddled, pretentious or incoherent. I mean that the alive and brilliant young English scholars all over the country would be saying they wanted to go there to do their work.

So in short, if art does not teach morality and ethics, then it is damaging to its audience, and for Plato this damaged his Republic. Form Criticism was introduced into biblical-critical studies by Hermann Gunkel at the beginning of this century. Death of the author: A post-structuralist theory, first advanced by Roland Barthes, that suggests that the reader, not the author, creates the meaning of a text. So too, modern historians can study the same evidence and reach different conclusions.
