Episode 85 The Gospels as Stories with Jeannine Brown

Dr. Jeannine Brown, professor of the New Testament at Bethel Seminary, is the author of a number of books on Scripture, hermeneutics, and the Gospels.  In her recent book, The Gospels as Stories: A Narrative Approach to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John (Baker Academic, 2020), she demonstrates the deep significance of reading the Gospels as unified stories.  Most Bible reading is done a verse here, a chapter there.  But what if we could read an entire book at one time, in one sitting?  Or what if we could read a Gospel publicly all at once?  What we would hear in the tone and texture of each Gospel?  Rather than cutting and pasting their stories of Jesus together like a poorly written freshman research paper, the Gospel writers were theologians and skilled story tellers in their own right.  They have an approach to Jesus we need to hear to grasp better his global and historical significance.  To learn more about Jeannine Brown and to hear other podcasts by her, go to
