New to me biblio/theoblog: Rudimentary Bible

This is not a blog about Rudolf Bultmann, nor a space for “demythologizing” the Bible. Rather, this blog proposes the following:

1) The impetus for the composition of the biblical texts are the existential concerns that all humans may encounter, not limited to, but including: identity, justice, and subsistence.

2) These human concerns, therefore, are the crucial issues that biblical faiths must encounter in an honest manner and prioritize ahead of ontological claims such as creedal statements or orthodox doctrine.
