Paul tells a story

Do you find it interesting that in Galatians 1-2 when Paul’s apostleship is threatened he tells 3 stories (true stories that is)?

The gospel itself is a story that we are invited to participate in and get caught up in.

Perhaps it is fair to say that the gospel is more story than a series of propositions?

Although it is right that the story contains many propositions and out of which true propositions may be articulated.

The story itself is a propositional revelation (truth given in words) although the form is story not a series of propositions.

If we take seriously the nature of propositional revelation then we must take seriously the nature and importance of story in God’s revelation.
