A multidimensional approach towards the communication of ancient canonised texts
This article suggests that the implementation of a multidimensional approach towards ancient canonised texts is a reality-orientated, problem-solving and progressive-effective alternative to the futile exercise of a one-dimensional approach. The over- and underexposure of the text by either an absolutised text-immanent or historical analysis is comparable to someone trying to solve Rubic's cube by turning only one level of squares. The multidimensional analysis of the relief-mapping function of the static thrust, the cosmologic-orientational function of the dynamic perspective and the persuasive function of the dialectic strategy of 1 Peter, illustrated new possibilities of experiencing a meaningful communication of ancient canonised texts as "a cosmologic battle between perspectives".
