Every story has to take place somewhere, and very often locations have a special meaning or significance evoked by events that already took place there. In this video, we explore how biblical authors use settings in the narrative to meet the reader’s expectations or to mess with them. Paying attention to locations and timelines in biblical stories unlocks deeper layers of meaning.
