  • Noticed at 3:58 in the “introducing genres” video, seventeen OT books (including Genesis & Exodus) and the four gospels & Acts are in the genre “History”.
    Really!!! What kind of history is that?

    • I think he used an already-existing image for that, but the categorization is problematic – particularly for the Hebrew Bible shelf. The Gospels and Acts probably do belong in the genre of “history” as long as one specifies that (1) it is not critical history, even by ancient standards, and (2) such a categorization does not mean that things depicted in it happened – one still has to assess the evidence in each specific case.
