ABOUT THE CLASS
Scripture as Story: A Starting Point for Teaching and Preaching from the Old Testament

This presentation will describe an intentional approach to reading the Bible as story. We often encounter the stories of the Bible in our teaching and preaching and this approach regards these stories as episodes that contribute to a unified, overarching story. When it comes to hermeneutics and the Old Testament, this approach provides reason for regular engagement of the Old Testament and some specific methods for interpretation.
