    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; allegory; interpretative tradition; homiletics; sermon guidelines; Church of Sweden; Bible impact; Gospel of Luke; parables; narrative criticism; implied reader; vehicle; tenor; Reception studies;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis looks at present-day ecclesial use of the Bible by investigating the reception of narrative parables from the Gospel of Luke, chapters 10–15, in sermon guidelines published 1985–2013 in two periodicals aimed mainly at Church of Sweden clergy. The main problems can be expressed by the words “what”, “how” and “why”: What is received – and what is not received? How is that which is received understood? Why is the reception (and non-reception) of the Bible as it is? The introductory chapter deals with narrative parables generally and within the Gospel of Luke as well as with the genre of sermon guidelines. LÄS MER

Biology therefore has a peculiar place among the sciences according to Kant: it is a natural science constituted by the use of a regulative maxim. LÄS MER
