Anastasios,

"It is not meant to be used it sermons and can't be learned apart from the narrative and homiletic approach, though!"

Is this Terazi's observation or yours or your professor's?  How is this position sustained?  What is the sources reasons for holding this position?  Does he really mean   "No Old Testament text is to be used in sermons"?

Dan,

I can see your confusion and I'm sorry, I have edited the text.  What I meant was the critical method alone is not to be used in sermons, not the Old Testament texts!

In Christ,

anastasios

I do see your point.  I can see how some information that could be gleaned from the critical method might indirectly assist.  Perhaps the two versions of the Creation story might give us a clearer understanding of the relationship between men and women and might give us a better understanding of the nature of God, for that matter.  

It is interesting to me that I have yet to hear a sermon from an Old Testament text.  Is that standard? Common?

Both my BC priest and the folks here at St. Vladimir's regularly tie in OT themes into their sermons.
