S1E3 Metanarrative

Nov 29, 2017

Episode 03

Imagine opening a novel and starting in chapter five. You’ll miss the premise of the whole book. Then why do so many people start their Bible study in the New Testament? Today’s discussion is about narrative theology, or meta-narrative.

Meta-Narrative means studying the big story—the whole overarching thread of the scriptures. This is different from systematic theology, which is micro-detail analysis of the Bible.

You can’t get a full picture of the Bible unless you have both the Old Testament and the New Testament. When you have that overarching meta-narrative, you have an integrated understanding of who God is.
