The article shows the various polarities in tension -- necessary and enriching -- that exist throughout the interpretation process of the Scriptures in Church. The Word, which is always proclaimed by a witness, presents a range of polarities between the personal and institutional spheres and between Pneuma and institution. Tradition and creativity, experience and formulation, individual and community are many other polarities that must be kept properly balanced. It is concluded that the relation between Jesus and the Church, at the beginning of Christianity, as well as the current relation between Christology and Pneumatology, involves a complete polarity which includes the former and that somehow allows the understanding of this vital phenomenon of faith that is called the ecclesiastical interpretation of the Scripture.
