what the nature of the Old Testament(OT)/Bible is.
- So here, you would discuss things like: how did history/context influence how the OT writers wrote the Bible? What do their pictures and stories about God teach us? What does it say that some pictures/images of God in the OT do not match up with the picture of God in Jesus in the New Testament (NT) like the stories of the herem and others? How do you reconcile the two (OT and NT) and what would you say to someone who asked? (If you want to discuss these latter questions, talk more about the OT than the NT.) In short, if someone asked you, ‘what is the Bible?’ how would you answer?
- Provide examples from multiple chapters of Pemberton to prove points.
