This morning I am taking Jeremiah and Daniel with Professor Tremper Longman. What a gifted communicator! Tremper adds a unique perspective into Old Testament literature. Here’s a sample quote from today’s lecture:
Don’t spend all your time arguing against what the text doesn’t mean, but actually what it means. The Literary approach means reading text as whole texts. It means that genre is critical to interpretive text. The Bible is written in different genres. And different genres require different reading strategies.
