Biblical Narratives in Contemporary Society
2019 Academic Symposium
It would be difficult to overstate the influence that Biblical narratives have had upon the formation of contemporary society. In this student led panel, the ways in which Biblical narratives have impacted and continue to shape current cultural conversations will be explored. Based on work done in THE 210: Understanding the Scriptures, students will present papers that identify how biblical narratives are still at work in our society, will argue whether particular cultural uses of biblical narratives is a good thing or a bad thing, and will show whether current uses of biblical narratives interpret the biblical text appropriately from the standpoint of academic Christian theology and critical Biblical scholarship.
