Genesis Creation Story

The Genesis Creation story of Genesis chapters 1-3 is ground zero for so many contentious issues – whether it be the faith/science issue or even arguments amongst evangelicals themselves. As lines are drawn in the sand and sides taken, it seems that “Moses’ Message” – authorial intent – can get lost in the ensuing conflict.


In this series, in an attempt to cut through the static and gain a deeper appreciation for Moses’ Message, we explore the views of John Walton and John Sailhamer. Both views bring insights to Genesis that are too often overlooked in normal conversation.


Walton takes an event-centered approach to Genesis – an approached informed by the ancient Near Eastern context of Hebrew culture. Sailhamer takes a text-centered approach – an approach informed by the connectedness of the Pentateuch and the unified message it contains. Hope you enjoy.
