old testament introduction, literary, pericope, historical-critical method
Bible Study; Lecture; Sermon Prep
In its report, "A Lutheran Stance Toward Contemporary Biblical Studies," the Commission on Theology and Church Relations described what it considered to be ''basic and legitimate elements of the so-called historical-critical method." Since the publication of this report there has been, it seems to me, an increased interest on the part of individuals and pastoral conferences to study and apply the techniques of this interpretative method. Invitations to present studies of Biblical pericopes applying this method have multiplied. In such presentations one normally illustrates how Old Testament introductions are used in determining the literary form of a pericope and discovering the historical situation that produced it and to which it was originally addressed.
