Lecture Notes September 6 th *the bible lives in three worlds; there is no one way to read the bible. *(circles overlapping) Literary=bible is a collection of books: sermons, hymns, songs, letters, prayers, ect. Historical=has a history, talks about events in history, creates its own history, interprets history Scriptural=for someone’s religion, has an aspect of seriousness, connects to spirituality *the bible reflects a development of monotheism (belief in one God), or a single world view *some religions are non-exportable and are located in one place, if you go outside of the location then your religion no longer applies (think Polynesian islands) *If a religion is monotheistic then it must ask the question: What about everyone else? (outside of our religion, that does not believe in our God). *polytheism—agrees everyone had their own gods , protecting themselves because they were tired of dealing with other people , and went into the world (all creation) to save those who were Jews or non-Jews, even enemies (Nineveh) *Saint Paul’s mission was to the gentiles, early Christians were making the transition from Jews to Christians
