If you thought Bible stories were for children, nice little tales with a nice little moral at the end, then you probably have not been following the E100 up to this point, and you certainly have not been reading the bits the organisers censored out!
Bible stories are NOT like that, rather they tell in the most realistic way possible the stories of real people, who we must watch, listen to and then work out how we’ll respond. Is Samuel the real hero of the books that bear his name? Is Saul a hero or a villain? And David a plaster saint? Just to pose the questions is to suggest answers that don’t fit the Sunday School Story mode of reading the Bible.
This set of five readings will give us more practice at reading the real Bible 🙂
