Description

What kind of texts are we dealing with in Genesis, and what difference should this make to our interpretation of them? Are they myth, or history, or both/neither? Have Christians been right to see what they have seen in these books over the centuries? What are the boundaries of legitimate interpretation? What does Genesis have to say to contemporary Christians and their world? These and other similar questions will provide the focus for our exegetical study of portions of the text. Lectures include:

  • Introduction
  • Act I: The Prologue
  • Creation: Days 2-6
  • Creation: Day 6
  • Creation: The Blessing
  • Review of Genesis 1
  • Act II: The Descendents of Heaven and Earth
  • "The Garden in the East"
  • The Suitable Helper
  • The Temptation and Sin
  • Consequences of Sin
  • Reflections on Genesis 3
  • Cain and Abel
  • Act III: The Descendents of Adam
  • Act IV: The Descendents of Noah
  • The Flood
  • Act V: The Descendents of Shem, Ham, and Japheth
