What kind of time to read scriptural texts?

The final session of “Media, Religion and Culture” only had one presenter. Frank Daniel Coffey, from Canada, present a paper about “Taking Time for Reading Scriptural Text – Drawing and Continuity: the Role of Mass Media”.

Mr. Coffey talked about the importance of time and referred that it is not material and not limited. In the researcher opinion, the nature of time is not sequential but it is consequential. Everything is immediately and forever new.

The Canadian researcher analyzed what kind of time we need to interpret scriptural text. He referred that everyone needs a sense of time and sequence to interpret anything. In his point of view, a religious person appreciates another kind of time. Finally, Mr. Coffey conclude that the reality isn’t the text, but the text giving us a signal of reality.
