  • Parallelism

    • Key insight in Hebrew-Biblical literature

    • Usually in pairs, sometimes 3s or 4s (two pairs)

    • In sentences, in paragraphs, in units, in books!

  • Inverted Parallelism

    • As in Lk 2.14

    • Also called Chiasma(ta)

CICC Cafe: Biblefresh InsightsMeaning-makingGlory to God – Speaking with Angels’ Tongues!

  • Truth at two dimensions

    • Linear or 2D – the linear reading of the text

    • Parallel or 3D – the parallel reading of the text

      • Notice the three parallels in Luke 2.14

      • Two eulogies, two realities, two beneficiaries

    • Like the difference between 2D vision & 3D vision!

    • 2D is seeing on one plane, 3D is seeing in depth
