Example text

By being situated within the Bible, the works of St Paul take on religious significance. Readers generally associate Paul's texts with the sacred truths associated with Christianity. By associating the writings of Paul with sacred text, the slippage from translation - 'express the sense of in or into another language' - to interpretation - 'expound the meaning of; make out the meaning of' - seems obvious. 9 At this point, the Church enters with its theology. What the Church has historically offered the reader of the Bible, and hence 5t Paul, is simply that: meaning, not sense.

Readers generally associate Paul's texts with the sacred truths associated with Christianity. By associating the writings of Paul with sacred text, the slippage from translation - 'express the sense of in or into another language' - to interpretation - 'expound the meaning of; make out the meaning of' - seems obvious. 9 At this point, the Church enters with its theology. What the Church has historically offered the reader of the Bible, and hence 5t Paul, is simply that: meaning, not sense. Whether through the magisterium or through the sacerdotal-like exegesis practised in the other churches, the text has been protected, and when offered, it has been cloaked in the rich and resplendent garments called 'truth'.

Good translation exposes that Paul's writings are examples of what every reader does: attempts to translate that which has gone before. Good translation puts the reader in tension with the text {and all that it entextualises}, not with the Author, not with Truth, and lets the reader make his own meaning, his own truth. Perhaps somewhere in the act of reading, in the act of translation, the reader will catch a glimpse of God's backside as he passes by; then again, maybe not. Notes 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
