Reflection for the Week - October 5

On the one hand, the biblical text resists being collapsed into just another ANE or GR text, though it is one, and on the other, it is unable to attain the status of a pure revelation from God, however, it does reveal. Some of the biblical stories may be exaggerated or even outlandish, but there is still in the overarching mega story a testimony to God in time – something happened to produce the narrative recountings of such a common, yet remarkably unique character. Thus, this perspective invites one into a tension, without guarantees.
