Teaching material on biblical narrative genre based on 2 Samuel 11:1-12:15 with special focus on David's adultery and Nathan's prophecy
Chee Way Chen
This dissertation explored the narrator's use of David's sin to teach that effective leadership requires a turning away from evil and obedience to God's commandments. The methodology to discover the narrator's intention involved analyzing the different elements in the biblical narrative genre; that is, the setting, character, plots, rhetoric, narrative time and point of view. It also included practical sessions of a Bible study based on observing the elements in the text.
