Overview

In Reading the Bible as a Complete Story Chip Bennett and Warren Gage teach that the Bible’s sixty-six book collection is ultimately the profound work of a divine author and tells one story with Jesus as the central theme. Drs. Bennett and Gage argue that such a reading of the Bible is consistent with the context of other Hellenistic literature, which leads us to understand Scripture as a beautiful, poetic comedy that ends in a divine marriage between Christ and His bride, the church. Such an Alexandrian reading of the Bible does not contradict but rather complements a traditional historical-grammatical hermeneutic, providing a more holistic reading of Scripture and opening up entirely new vistas in understanding the Bible.

Upon successful completion you should be able to:
  • Summarize the story line of the Bible
  • Explain what an Alexandrian reading of Scripture looks like, and provide illustrations from the Bible
  • Discuss major themes found in Scripture, including the themes of third day resurrection, the transition from suffering to glory, and the bride of Christ, and trace them through both the Old and New Testaments
  • Explain the genre of Scripture from a Hellenistic perspective and compare it to traditional fairy tales in folk literature
  • Demonstrate how to see Christ in all of Scripture
