Abstract
This project dealt with the problem concerning how the Old Testament is interpreted and exposited. The practicum I devised was to take six texts, which represent each genre of the narrative literature of the Old Testament, and to show how the historical-critical method is a valuable tool towards the task of preaching. The six genres I considered were: saga, law, history, wisdom, prophets, and short-story. The two basic considerations of the historical-critical method which I focused upon were the original context and the literary form.
