What is Demythologising?
A translation of a talk by Rudolf Bultmann
Read by the Rev. E. H. Robertson
A new word has entered into New Testament criticism since Bultmann began his exegests: Entmythologisierung, beet translated demythologising.' Bultmann claims that there are many passages in the Bible, especially those about God and his dealings with man, that have the form of mythological expressions; and if they are to be intelligible in the twentieth century they must be interpreted. Such interpretation does not eliminate the passages but gives them meaning for today. In this talk he explains what the process is.
