Il valore strutturante e teologico di swb e ysb nel libro di Osea,
Antonianum, 67/4 (1992) p. 472-491
SUMMARY: The present study, although conducted some years ago, still maintains the validity of a contribution towards the methodical discussion of biblical exegesis of that time and today (the debate remains invariably vivacious).The assumption, from which the author departs, is that the biblical text should not be read only in the «classical» way, separating the textual material from its literary identity, but also with a new exegetic approach. This latter approach consists in having a preferential consideration for the literary nature of the biblical text and, consequently, in studying it starting from the criteria offered by modern linguistic-literary sciences. A specimen of such test is the booklet of Osea. Such prophetical work, over and above the many problems foreseen and presented by the historical-critical analysis, offers its own unified editorial configuration, adequately accessible through linguistic criteria, and, particularly, through poetics of the generative processes of a literary text. The historical-critical exegesis is not at all eliminated, but rather receives a lively complement.
