8 WHY ARE WE TALKING ABOUT THIS?  Turn to page 102 in your books:

9 P101 - OLD TESTAMENT NARRATIVES  Who is in control of History??  The Problem of Evil:  The Problem of Evil is rooted in an existentialist worldview.  The assumption: we (humans) are the center of history  Abraham: is God choosing a people or a making a Nation?

10 HOMEWORK:  Read PwF pp – take Socrative reading check quiz  Room:  Post Threaded Discussion by 9pm tonight for Extra Credit

13 PRACTICE QUIZ  Take out a sheet of paper 1. How did the word of the Lord come to Abram 2. What did God tell Abram to count as a comparison to his offspring? 3.

14 P105: SPIRITUALLY FORMED BY NARRATIVES  Three levels of Narratives and Histories:  Top Level = The eternal, universal plan of God  Middle Level = The story of God’s people  Lowest Level = The stories of individuals  God is the Hero  Mistake 1: we look at individuals as models  Mistake 2: we overpersonalize Old Testament narratives (example: Gideon)

18 P109: SPIRITUALLY FORMED BY NARRATIVES CONT.  Best to take Big Bites  We should emphasize the broader sweeps, the larger chunks of the narrative, rather than looking primarily at individual units: e.g. Judges (sin cycle)  Error 1: allegorizing  Error 2: moralizing or principlizing

19 2 MAIN QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN READING OT NARRATIVE  Primary: What does this passage tell us about God, His plan, or the role that his people should be playing in his plan?  Secondary: What positive or negative model might this passage be setting before us to teach us about trusting God in the midst of His plan?
