The studies themselves are not intended to be comprehensive or complete commentaries on the biblical passages, but rather a survey of the basic story line, a brief analysis on the features of the text that serve to communicate its message, and a summary of the theological communication of the passages as a basis for further reflection.  That means that there will be a lot of interesting details of the biblical narratives that will not be directly considered.

Additional Material:
