This is a podcast sneak peak at Dr. Nicholas Schaser's new IBC course called Israelite Creation in Context. This week is all about Genesis 2 and the earthiness of the narrative. How does this chapter differ from chapter 1? How does the text portray Eden as sacred? And if you listen to the end you might get a little on that mischief-causing snake.

Episode Notes

We explore the creation narratives of Genesis within their natural ancient Near Eastern context and then ask how that changes the way we read the text.
