"Well, the Hebrew Bible is like family story-telling with God in the picture. For Jewish people, context is everything. If you tell a story, it has to be a this-world story about people on this earth " the one God crafted for them to live on and filled with everything they need to be blessed and fruitful. Everything that happens on earth happens within the context of God's great Creation-blessing. "
"the Hebrew Bible is like following a trained geologist through the Black Hills"
