n important concern of the devout as well as the scholars of religion has been the unveiling of the intended meanings of religious texts. As to the Koran and the Bible, since Christians and Muslims consider them as the revelatory word, many interpreters have sought some meanings beyond the literal meanings of single words, propositions, and narratives. So there have been utilized different polysemic models in interpreting the Bible from a long time ago, especially from the Middle Ages. Also, polysemy has been used in interpretation of the Koran through different devices such as esoteric exegesis, manifest meaning, inner meaning, final exoteric meaning, final non-manifest, announced expressions, allusions, subtle things and also truths. Presenting different types of polysemic models in the various domains including logic, literature, and interpretation, the essay is going to investigate into the polysemic models of interpreting the Koran and the Bible, to compare those models, and finally to deal with the evaluation of them.
