How Harry Potter Helps Illustrate Biblical Theology

Here at A Greater Story, I am all about showing how the Bible is to be read as one overarching narrative—one that tells the story of how God saves his people. Biblical theology is the task of studying how every part of the Bible—from Genesis to the chronologies to Revelation—contribute to this grand story.

Recently, Andy Naselli shared how reading and listening to the Harry Potter series helped him better understand biblical theology. In this video, he highlights how J.K. Rowling intentionally builds key themes within every book; these themes might be small in the beginning, but fully blossom in the end.

The study Bible that he mentions—NIV Zondervan Study Bible—looks very promising. It is coming out next week, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!
