C.S. Lewis famously called the gospel of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection “True Myth.” What he meant was that 1) it really happened (“True”) and 2) it serves as a worldview-forming grand story (“Myth”) for Christians. Other religions and cultures tell such stories without necessarily believing that they really happened—take the Enuma Elish.
In this week’s video, I’ll show you how to conduct a New Testament word study on the word “myth” by first examining the use of the term in the Bible and then exploring its use in Greek literature from the same period.
