The paper analyses the prescriptive Biblical performative verbs zapovedovati (zapovedujem), ukazováti (ukazujem), narocati (narocam) and constructions such as to je moja zapoved, novo zapoved vam dam, izdajam povelje. The verb zapovedovati is never used performatively in the commandments of the Old Testament. The first person singular form only reports a given situation. In their performative use the prescriptive verbs signal a new situation.

In dealing with biblical subjects (especially in dramatic production between 1910 and 1930) Croatian literary expressionism showed its potent artistic side. This paper attempts to identify active literary mechanisms used by Croatian expressionist writers in their works in order to mark the syntactic and semantic potential of the biblical text. The analysis of intertextual connections between the biblical original and new literary structures results in establishing the dichotomy between affirmation/reconstruction (M. Begović, A. Cesarec, J. Kosor, T. Prpić, F. Galović, S. Tucić, M. Ogrizović) and negation/disputing of biblical contents, motifs and symbols (T. Strozzi, M. Krleža, J. Kulundžić, K. Mesarić). A frequent choice of Christ’s character and events in connection with him for literary interpretation and the construction of structure and semantics of a new text gives evidence of functional overlapping and joining of a Christian myth on Jesus as a Savior of humankind and expressionistic myth on a New Man as a symbolic projection of spiritual renewal.
