Reading Plot and Narrative in the Bible

An important part of reading biblical narratives is learning how to understand the nature of "the plot," how stories are arranged into a pattern of conflict and resolution. In this video we'll see how ignoring the sequence of the plot can lead to distorted interpretation of biblical stories. We'll also explore how grasping the multi-layered nature of the narrative can help you see the unified story that leads to Jesus.

This video from The Bible Project might help you think about how you read biblical narrative as we work through the story of Abraham in our stargazer series.
