    41. Retribution: How did Israel view God's involvement in the world?

    41. Retribution: How did Israel view God's involvement in the world?

    How do the Hebrew authors portray that way that God gets involved in the lives of individuals and communities? How does this look in the New Testament, and how can we grapple with this question today? The hermeneutical principle of retribution is one of the most important worldview concepts of Israel and its neighbors. Reward and punishment (blessing and cursing) based on merit is one of the foundational components of how they viewed the world. In this episode, we discuss this topic at length. 

    We talk about modern conceptions of retribution before diving into how the people of the ancient Near East interpreted events. We dive into a specific example from the Mesha Stele Inscription from Moab along with the corresponding story in the Book of Kings. We talk about New Testament stories and the challenge for the church today. We finish by going over a key passage in Jeremiah and conclude with the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil as well as Proverbs.

    39. Dr. Joanna Kline: Connections between the stories of David, Jacob, Judah, and Joseph

    39. Dr. Joanna Kline: Connections between the stories of David, Jacob, Judah, and Joseph

    Dr. Joanna Kline is a professor at Gordon College where she teaches Old Testament. She specializes in literary approaches to the Bible and early interpretation of Scripture. If you enjoy seeing connections between different biblical stories, you will love today’s episode.

    Joanna talks about narrative analogy: when Biblical stories are written in such a way to make comparisons to other stories that can lead to more avenues of interpretation. She sees connections between the story of David and the stories of Jacob, Judah, and Joseph.

    We also talk about the nature of the writing/editing process of the Hebrew Bible and how we explain why narrative analogies occur. There are some interesting differences in the Greek Septuagint and Hebrew Masoretic Text in the story of David and Goliath.

    David, Uriah, and Bathsheba - Joseph, Potiphar, and Potiphar’s wife

    Judah and Tamar - Absolem and half sister

    We finish by discussing the themes that rise to the surface through the motifs of these narrative analogies.
