Sneak Peak! Dr. Nicholas Schaser has a new course about to be released called Israelite Creation in Context. This week we get to dive into the assumed context of Genesis 1. What is the ancient Near Eastern context? How does reading the Israelite narrative next to the ancient Near Eastern narratives help us understand the Bible?

Episode Notes

We assume all kinds of things when we read the creation accounts in Genesis. We cannot help it! But are the Bible and scientific theories actually in conversation with each other? If the Bible is not explaining the biological beginnings of the world, what is it trying to do?
