Exploring Aspects of Biblical Narratives


Narrative dominates the literary landscape of the Old Testament. But narrative is not a closed literary form. Among other things, it traffics in techniques comparable to other forms of discourse in the Old Testament. And narrative welcomes interpretive dialogue with other forms of discourse in the Old Testament through its integration of and juxtaposition to diverse types of texts. The 2024 Old Testament Study Group will explore the dynamics of Old Testament narrative from theoretical and literary perspectives.
