This Paper examines how the historical-critical method of Biblical interpretation differs from the interpretation of Scripture as it occurs in the liturgy. The Paper focuses on the seven readings of the Old Testament during the Easter vigil, comparing how historical criticism and the liturgy understand these readings. The Paper concludes by offering a possible solution for reconciling these two methods of interpretation.
