In his booklet outdated testomony Ethics: A Paradigmatic process, writer Waldemar Janzen makes an attempt to cajole readers of the predominance of tale over legislations because the moral, and exemplary middle to the ethics of the Hebrew Bible. For Janzen, this can be confirmed most sensible by means of 5 paradigms together with one relevant and entire paradigm (The Familial Paradigm, grounded in Genesis thirteen, referring to in most cases a framework of: the renovation of existence, the ownership of land, and the belief of hospitality) and 4 inner, subordinate paradigms inclusive of the Priestly Paradigm (taken from Num. 25), the knowledge Paradigm (taken from 1Sam. 25), the Royal Paradigm (taken from 1Sam 24), and the Prophetic Paradigm (taken from 1Kings 21). in line with Dr. Janzen, taken jointly, all of those 5 paradigms current those who are intended to function archetypal photos and naturally, they're ultimately proven to spot the individual Jesus (Janzen, 1994, 193). For Waldemar Janzen, a long way an excessive amount of emphasis has been wear the predominance of the legislations all through outdated testomony learn and in particular the examine of outdated testomony Ethics. The kinfolk Paradigm as Janzen writes, "represents the excellent finish of all outdated testomony Ethics" (Janzen, 1994, 3).

For Janzen this narrative method is related to prevent the propensity in the direction of reductionism that he perceives to be stemming from extra command orientated ways.
