The "authority of the text", as this relates to diverse methods of biblical interpretation, is present in the warp and weft of diverse interpretive practices that emerge from the temporal contours of human language, tradition, issues and questions, yet it has no adjudicating reference point that saturates the field of interpretation. With a primary focus on the temporality of understanding (Heidegger and Gadamer) and Ricoeur's reading of biblical hermeneutics, this article gives focus to the temporality of interpretation as providing a particular schematic context for understanding a subtle "authority of the text".
