Actualizing narration as provocation to self-appropriation of biblical narratives: A biblical didactic concretion

The article deals with a didactic way of teaching the Bible, which wants to challenge the students to self-appropriation of biblical texts by means of actualizing narration. Of importance here are the didactic principles of text orientation und addressee orientation, as well as the fundamental interest in giving weight to the biblical text itself (and not just to a simplified transformation of the text). The present essay concretizes the conception using the example of a significant New Testament parable.
