Read the Bible As If for the First Time- Why Two Stories Are Better Than One

ID : 49330   
« back to classes page
Would you like to understand biblical texts in the same way as original audiences did? Travis Frampton Schreiner Provost and a former Biblical Studies Professor will help us interpret biblical stories as the audiences, for whom stories from the Bible were originally intended, understood the stories. Stories like the Genesis creation account, the Exodus from Egypt, chronicles of Israel's and Judah's kings or passages from the life and ministry of Jesus in the four gospels will be discussed as examples.

Discuss the presuppositions we bring to bear on biblical texts when we read them? Does the interpretive residue from our worldview stick to these stories, so to speak, as we read them? And, since others before us have read these stories across two millennia, how much interpretive residue already adheres to these narratives? Join Dr. Frampton as he helps you appreciate Biblical stories as their original audiences enjoyed these narratives nearly two thousand years ago.
