This dissertation offers an interdisciplinary analysis of some features of the Speech-
Act Theory in biblical hermeneutics. It highlights some of the probable aspects of the
studied analysis regarding hermeneutic issues within biblical and theological analysis.
The paper shall describe the philosophical interpretation of the examination of the
Speech-Act Theory. It will focus on the principles and standards of demarcating the
Speech-Acts and allocating the written texts theory. The paper shall also describe the
difference between ‘weak’ and ‘strong’ speech acts. The dissertation shall commence
by analysing the main concerns about the speech act theory. It will concentrate on the
works of Thiselton and Vanhoozer’s works and modifies their works with the aim of
highlighting some of the key elements of their hermeneutics. Therefore, the
dissertation shall offer the views of Thiselton and Vanhoozer and differentiate their two
different views of the Speech-Act Theory in the field of the hermeneutics in search for
a third option.
