It’s done! The much awaited first installment of Bible Survey, Creation Week, is now online.
The first 12 chapters of Genesis cover a period of centuries, and present us with some major events from early history. The Gen. 1 post is lengthy, and this looks like it may be a slow go for a few posts. After we meet Abraham in Gen. 12, we should be able to take wings and fly. Here is an excerpt:
God is all-powerful, and created all that exist from nothing, confirmed by Heb. 11:3 and Rev. 4:11. Critics might argue that Hebrew is an ancient, difficult language, and that no original copies survive due to the passage of time. Many times, however, the truths of the Old Testament are quoted, illustrated, or otherwise affirmed by the authors of the New Testament. Their writings are more recent, plentiful, and easier translated from Greek and/or Aramaic. That God created the universe and all that is in it is one of those fundamental truths.
