How to adequately understand the Christian truth claim, and its relation to our current context? Answering this question immediately involves entering into the discussion about the different ways this truth claim is understood in relation to the multiple ways in which the context is analysed. In the postmodern context the often self-evident truth claim is interrupted both from a socio-cultural and philosophical perspective. In a concise manner, three ways to deal with the challenge of this interruption are discussed: one defending orthodoxy against its interruption; another associating orthodoxy with this interruption; and a third allowing orthodoxy to be challenged by this interruption in order to rediscover its own interruptive nature.
