Interpreting Old Testament Narrative

10 Dec

In the book Cracking Old Testament Codes, Walt Kaiser shares seven keys to interpreting biblical narrative:

1.) Identify each scene of the narrative.
2.) Analyze the plot of the narrative.
3.) Determine the point of view from which the narrative is recorded.
4.) Pay close attention to the details of the scene.
5.) Examine the dialogue that the author uses to narrate the story.
6.) Look at the units within a scene and their relationship with one another.
7.) Study the stylistic devices the author used.
