The paper offers an overview of what the Scripture and the Tradition are from an Orthodox perspective and practice. The author is preoccupied by orality and scripturality trying to present us with a possible answer to the meaning of writing as a replacement for the oral way of transmitting the Revelation. The paper underlines the link between Tradi­tion, Scripture and Canon, while confessing the belief that the Holy Scripture is not only a human product but a divine-human reality The author introduces an overview of the dynamics of the biblical text which justifies a similar dynamics of the biblical research, thus introducing a synthetic presentation of Romanian biblical research from the beginning of the XXth century to today.
