The next installment of Bible Survey has been posted. The Fall recounts the events of Gen. 2:4 – 3:24, and offers plenty of food for thought. I’m sure you will wonder why some things were left out. These posts are so long as it is, even though there were other things I would have liked to have said. Perhaps it will happen in the comment thread as people respond or ask questions. I think there are 3 points of interest that could spark debate:
- I definitely take the view that man has free will, and plainly deny predestination in my explanation of original sin.
- Marriage is defined as being between one man and one woman; at least, marriage that honors God as it was given by God.
- Genesis 3:15 is the first hint at the announcement of the Gospel. The notion of Jesus appears as early as the third chapter of the Bible. God knew even then what he was doing, and Moses writes it down without having a clue.
