Overview

The Bible can often be a mystery to those who read it. There are various narratives that combine to make a great story. We have a great story, which is God’s story, which is then the story of creation, with humans in the middle of it. We have Israel’s story, called to be the promise bearing humans. The story then becomes focused on David and his family as the ones who are specially charged of ruling God’s people and bringing God’s justice to the world. And with this vocation there comes the parallel temptation to abuse the vocation.

Often, people wonder how the various stories, poems, prophetic texts, Gospels, and letters all fit together. And, indeed, they do fit together in ways needing to be understood by readers of the Bible. This course will unpack some of the questions surrounding the meaning of the Bible to bring a coherent sense of what is being communicated by the biblical writers. The Bible then, truly, becomes a Grand Story of God's faithfulness.

Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright (1948–) has been named by Christianity Today as one of our time’s top theologians. He is currently professor of New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews University. Wright holds a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s in Anglican ministry, and a DPhil, all from University of Oxford.

A fellow and chaplain at Cambridge from 1978 to 1981, he then served as assistant professor of New Testament language and literature at McGill University in Montreal. Before becoming a chaplain, tutor, lecturer, and fellow at Oxford in 1986, Wright served as dean of Lichfield Cathedral, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, and bishop of Durham.

His academic work has usually been published under the name “N.T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”

    This was beautifully done! I enjoyed how all of the Bible was woven together into a beautiful story. One of my favorite passages is Colossians 1:15-20, and I thought Dr. Wright's explanation of this was just wonderful. Listening to these videos has given me much to meditate on - thank you!!

    Nice readings from N.T. but when I click on the Quiz links (on my iPad) they all say “Not Available.” Why aren’t these components available?
