Let's face it: the Old Testament at times isn't easy to read. And however hard it often is to read, it's frequently even harder to understand, and still harder to apply. At the same time, the Old Testament contains verse upon verse of vital information for us to understand what's going in the New Testament. So how should we read and understand Old Testament narratives? Are they stories with a moral point to draw out? Are they allegories for our "spiritual" life?
At the end of the day, what are these bible stories about, and how should we read them? This series takes five weeks to look at some of the most popular Old Testament narratives and understand what they're all about.
