What is it about?

Intertextuality is a theory that asserts that language and texts are connected through a web of interconnections, connected through the past, present, spoken, and written. Hermeneutic Phenomenology is a discipline that explains the phenomenon of interpretation and the human experience. In this article I combine these theories in order to bring clarity to New Testament interpretation. Ultimately, it offers interpreters guidelines for using intertextuality and explains how intertextuality is used in interpretation.
