Many Christians approach reading the Bible without first considering what story the Bible is trying to tell. This is similar to trying to put a puzzle together without knowing what picture you are trying to create. If we do not understand the big narrative (meta-narrative), then we will probably be confused as to what all the little narratives mean and how they fit together.

Biblical Theology helps us improve our understanding of Scripture because it helps us understand what story the Bible is trying to tell. Our goal in studying an Old Testament Biblical Theology is that we would be better equipped to interpret, understand, and apply the Old Testament in a way that honors Christ and informs our understanding of the gospel.
