Have you noticed Jesus' moves yet? He shows them off with the Pharisees and Teachers of the Law first. Then he repeats them for the accused woman.

The Woman Caught in Adultery, Part 2: Such a (Greek) Tragedy
The Bible and the English Major
by Maren Jo Schneider

Noticing the Greek tragedy structure of this story shines a dramatic spotlight on its central theme. All the tragic goodness, including the crisis, climax, and fatal flaw, lies with the Pharisees and not with the woman, leaving the theme that usually distracts us backstage.

The Bible and the English Major
by Maren Jo Schneider

An angelic tour guide takes the prophet, Ezekiel, on a trippy journey through a restored temple gushing with Living Water.

The Woman Caught in Adultery, Part 1: What a Terrible Title
The Bible and the English Major
by Maren Jo Schneider
1y ago
Historical interpretation has made the woman in this story the infamous star of the show. But when we do a little grammatical analysis, we see she functions far more like a prop for the Pharisees than a leading lady. How then, has she become the title character?

Martha's Story, Part 3: The Genre of Provocation
The Bible and the English Major
by Maren Jo Schneider

A properly read parable has never caused a case of the warm fuzzies. Parables were meant to confuse and disturb, to help the audience question the ways of this world and engage in the counter-cultural kingdom of God. Find out how the lawyer, so certain of his righteousness, responds to a good tweaking. NEW: Support If you can, please financially support The Bible and the English Major.

Martha has suffered too long in her sister Mary's shadow. Let's compare her to the 70 followers Jesus sends out and the self-righteous lawyer also found in Luke 10.
