Fill in the Gaps  (VR)

The narratives in the Bible often condense a story causing us to jump from one scene to the next without thinking about what might have happened between those scenes. There are gaps. Maybe there’s a change in location, or a change of mind, or a change in activity without any explanation. New insights often come when we try to fill in those gaps carefully but with reasonable details consistent with scripture, history, the culture of the time period, and what we know about human beings.
