The bible is, to a large extent, an intertextual work. This applies both
to the Old Testament and the New Testament respectively, but also
especially in regards to the link between the New and Old Testament.
For this reason, it is very important to discover crosslinks. These
crosslinks are being explored based on text examples – from the
Torah, the records, the prophets, the gospel, the Pauline and Deutero-Pauline letters and the Revelation. As well as questions of the historic interpretation of the bible (for example fourfold exegesis, literal interpretation), fundamental biblical didactic problems are explored, and examples of the treatment of biblical texts in lessons are offered.
