Hi Carsten:
Here's a snippet (BeanShell, I'm afraid - but it shouldn't be to hard to 
convert) I use to display a single blog entry/article on my website. 
Note, you need the contentId. That comes from the user selecting from a 
list of articles and then passing that back via request parameter. Also, 
I created the view-entity ContentDataResourceElectronicTextView that 
joins the content -> data resource -> electronic text records together.

     GenericValue thisBlog = 
             UtilMisc.toMap("contentId", article), false);
    .... stuff left out....
     context.put("blog", thisBlog);

In the Freemarker template:

<#assign renderedContent = StringUtil.wrapString(blog.textData) />

I think I describe in pretty good detail how the OOTB OFBiz content data 
model works in the RSS document I did some time ago:
