“The Hebrew Bible’s stories and poems are accounts of human beings attempting to figure out what’s going on.”

This may not have been penned with the dignity such a profound effort deserves, but I really can’t argue with the thought. In fact, it’s a pretty compelling insight—probably more so than the student realized. A very human-centered idea of Holy Writ. Trying to figure out what’s going on is, in fact, what we do, from the moment we’re born to the moment we die—admittedly, some more desperately than others.

Enjoy this new “take” on Scripture!
