    breaking Biblical stories into genres

    If they were to take the stories of the Bible and divide them in to different genres what would you put some of them?

    The Story of Jacob=Spy thriller (going undercover to steal information aka birthright)
    David the Early years= YA novel (a youth leads a revolution against a ruler)
    Samson=Tragedy

    Cool Question.

    I'd also put Samson into the superhero genre.

    Revelation: Science Fiction disaster movie.
    David II: The Later Years: Courtly Intrigue novel

    Someone recently suggested adapting Esther into a space opera about different alien races. You could probably do something similar with Ruth, though you might need to add a villain for more conflict.

    I've thought about turning Elijah's story into a spaghetti Western.

    Ezekiel could be something like a trippy horror movie.

    Joshua's story could be a gripping war movie, conquering Canaan.

    The book of Acts would be a documentary about the life of Paul.

    Job would be a heavy indie drama. (Just a few guys in a room talking for 90 minutes.)
