Author's Bias Interpretation: conservative Inclination: dispensational Seminary: none. On the surface, the Flood Narrative appears to have some duplications and contradictions such as the number of animals taken on the Ark and the timetable of the Flood. To explain this and deny Mosaic authorship, source critics have proposed that the Flood Narrative was composed of many small textual units from two different sources J and P , which were woven together by later redactors.

The Bible As Literature
Studying the Bible as Literature
Biblical hermeneutics is the study of the principles of interpretation concerning the books of the Bible. It is part of the broader field of hermeneutics , which involves the study of principles of interpretation, both theory and methodology, for all forms of communication, nonverbal and verbal. While Jewish and Christian biblical hermeneutics have some overlap and dialogue , they have distinctly separate interpretative traditions. One well-known summary of these principles appears in the Baraita of Rabbi Ishmael.

Allusions to the Bible permeate our artwork, our music, our literature, our conversation, and even pop culture.

This leaves students to puzzle over allusions that they encounter in art and literature.

From beginning to end, Kingsolver uses detailed imagery of the Price family, the Congo setting. Research in the field of "biblical literary criticism" have rapidly increased in recent decades. The publication of Robert Alter 's The Art of Biblical Narrative stamps the symbolic arrival of a style of analysis that has now become entrenched in modern biblical research.
