Understanding Bible Genres
1st Corinthians, the Culture and the Context
Principle 6 of 10 Principles of Responsible Scripture Interpretation
Genre is the literary type of a book. For example, some books of the Bible are written in the genre of a narrative with characters and plots that tell of real events in which we see God at work. Other portions contain law, poetry, wisdom, the cries of the prophets, and epistles of instruction and encouragement.
