Our modern priorities of exactitude and just-the-facts reporting can lead us to come to the Bible’s stories with a certain set of expectations. The authors of the Bible, however, had different agendas which are reflected in the ways they tell stories.
By learning to read the Bible’s narratives with careful eyes, we can uncover meaning and significance that has been hiding in plain sight all along.
