Episode 30 from Season 2 titled: Another way of seeing the Bible.

We all approach the Bible with a set of questions, but are these questions enough and could there be others to ask. In this session, we look at the questions a Western reader asks and the questions a Middle Eastern reader asks. Seeing the Bible through another set of questions can really help us engage with what it says.

The Modern Western Reader

  1. Did it really happen like this, is it historical?
  2. How does it solve my problems?
  3. Are these people real, what proof?
  4. Does it fit the world we know?
  5. Do I like it?

Eastern / Jewish Reader

  1. Why did the writer tell me this story?
  2. Why did the writer choose to write it like this?
  3. Why did the writer use this word not that?
  4. How can I entre the story?
  5. What does the story ask of me?
  6. Where have I heard this story before?
  7. What does it tell me about this world that I didn’t know?
