I show the students the call scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I then ask them to read Isaiah 6:1-12, Jeremiah 1:4-10, and Exodus 3:1-15. I ask them as a group to come up with the shared elements in these passages and the Python scene.
As a class we put together their list (and after we’re done) we compare it to the typical list by Habel.
(1) the divine confrontation
(2) the introductory word
(3) the commission
(4) the objection
(5) the reassurance
(6) the sign.
This worked pretty well. The students did pretty well putting the list together.
