oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - The human freedom to make meaning: A logo-philosophical reading of Revelation 1:3

Volume 33, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



Victor Frankl's logophilosophy is relevant for a contextual interpretation of Rev 1 :3. According to this philosophy there has to be meaning to life under any conditions, even the worst conceivable. Life has potential meaning under all circumstances. Frankl postulates four avenues by way of which one can attain meaning: creative values, experiential values, attitudinal values and gratitudinal values. An analysis of Rev 1:3 indicates that these values formed the foundation for the implied author's and the readers' search for meaning and ultimate meaning in their existence.
