erme14

Art. 14. Affermiamo che gli avvenimenti, le parole e i discorsi riportati dalla Scrittura nelle varie forme letterarie sono conformi a fatti storici. Respingiamo ogni teoria che sostiene che gli avvenimenti, le parole e i discorsi riportati dalla Scrittura sono stati inventati dagli autori biblici o dalle tradizioni che essi hanno incorporato nel testo.


This article combines the emphases of Articles VI and XIII. While acknowledging the legitimacy of literary forms, this article insists that any record of events presented in Scripture must correspond to historical fact. That is, no reported event, discourse, or saying should be considered imaginary.

The Denial is even more clear than the Affirmation. It stresses that any discourse, saying, or event reported in Scripture must actually have occurred. This means that any hermeneutic or form of biblical criticism which claims that something was invented by the author must be rejected. This does not mean that a parable must be understood to represent historical facts, since a parable does not (by its very genre) purport to report an event or saying but simply to illustrate a point.
