About 40% of the biblical material is narrative, story, and is the most common single type of writing in the Bible.

Historical narrative sections of the Bible can be some of the easiest to understand but the most difficult to interpret. We know what’s happening in the story of Jesus’ miraculously feeding 5, people and the account of David slaying Goliath.
But why did the biblical authors write down those stories in the first place. Narrative theology is the idea that Christian theology’s use of the Bible should focus on a narrative representation of the faith rather than the development of a set of propositions reasoned from the Scriptures themselves or what is commonly called a “systematic theology.”.
