What a wonderful book the bible is as you start to really see the depth of each genre and proper interpretation of God’s word. I am constantly at awe over the beauty that continually is growing out of the book before my very eyes.
One other piece i would add, that took me much longer to see or notice, is the continual pointing to Jesus each smaller story or description of history is doing. Called the meta-narrative. (A STORY ABOUT A STORY) when reading the psalms in this light, it blows me away how often they really are speaking 100% about jesus and not my personal circumstance, also the story of ruth. SO MUCH DEPTH when it comes to seeing her and Boaz’s interaction. (they actually have communion together) and this was new to me the bread that was constantly out on the table in the temple, called the bread of presence->this then shows up as we are instructed now to take part in the breaking of the bread and enjoy Jesus’ real presence with us.
any ways, i love scripture now compared to the chore it was as i was in my youth.
maybe this is old news, but its only been about 4 years of me finally getting this. haha
