Old Testament/Hebrew Bible

Literary Study

The Bible can be studied from many different points of view. A historical interest was the most common vantage point during the 19th and 20th centuries. Approaching the biblical text as literature involves noticing how the stories work as stories, and the poems as poems, etc. rather than asking historical questions of them.
