Puzzling the Bible 2
Yesterday, I posted the first piece of this Bible puzzle. Today, I give you all the pieces and allow you to have a go at deciphering the picture and its source. Tomorrow I promise to post the whole image assembled.
Take up your harp from the willow and sing of the puzzle:
- How close is this image to your mental image of the original story? And would a Better Bible link the original story to our culture or help us bridge the cultural and historical divide? How would it do that?
- How do we exegete a text without creating a caricature? How do we translate a text without transmogrifying it?
- Did you discover the truth about the puzzle by assembling the pieces in your mind or by putting together the text? How do text and images interact?
- How did The Lord Of The Rings movies affect your enjoyment of the book? What about The Passion Of Christ?
