Abstract

[Extract] In what follows I shall summarise these texts in the way a particular evangelical literalist interpreter might understand them. This will lead me to consider the nature of biblical texts in general and the 1st century CE Mediterranean worldview of evil spirits in particular. Before concluding this essay and underscoring what I consider the principle hermeneutic principle essential for religious dialogue, I want to turn one final New Testament periscope, Luke 6.27-36 (with a parallel in Matthew 5.39-47).
