PRAYER
O God, through dreams and visions,
you broaden the horizon and hope
of your people, that they may discover
the meaning of your covenant,
even in the midst of trial and exile.
May all people come to know and believe
in your word that they may joyfully respond
to your call and share in your promises.
Amen.

  • 3. The Story of the People of God: Part III the NATURE of CREATION
  • 7. An assumption presumed to be true without any assessment of the facts or without further proof; a Latin term that refers to a theoretical deduction made on a subject without a precise and detailed observation of the objective elements at hand A PRIORIASSUMPTION
  • 8. The only reason to look for evidence of a young earth, a global flood, or dinosaurs coexisting with humanity, is an a priori assumption that the Bible is meant to be read literally, and a belief that it must speak to matters of history and science in the way modern readers can grasp MY PERSONALCONVICTION
  • 10. The Bible’s message must not be subjected to cultural imperialism. Its message transcends the culture in which it originated, but the form in which the message was imbedded was fully permeated by the ancient culture. This was God’s design, and we ignore it at our peril.
  • 11. People in the ancient world believed that something existed, not by virtue of its material properties, but by… naming, separating and assigning functions and roles in an ordered system…the actual creative act (bara) is to assign something its functional role in the ordered system. This is what brings it into existence.
  • 12. In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. GENESIS 1:1-5
  • 13. CREATION INGENESIS 1 Day 1: Basis for time
  • 14. And God said, ‘Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.’ So God made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome. And it was so. God called the dome Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day. GENESIS 1:6-8
  • 15. CREATION INGENESIS 1 Day 1: Basis for time Day 2: Basis for weather
  • 16. And God said, ‘Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.’ And it was so. God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, ‘Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it.’ And…the earth brought forth vegetation…the third day. GENESIS 1:9-13
  • 17. CREATION INGENESIS 1 Day 1: Basis for time Day 2: Basis for weather Day 3: Basis for food
  • 18. As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, FOOD cold and heat, summer and winter, WEATHER day and night TIME will never cease. GENESIS 8:22 (post-flood)
  • 19. And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years…God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars*. God set them in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth…And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day. GENESIS 1:14-19

  • 21. And God said, ‘Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the dome of the sky.’ So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, of every kind, with which the waters swarm, and every winged bird of every kind…God blessed them, saying, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth…the fifth day. GENESIS 1:20-23

  • 23. And God said, ‘Let the earth bring forth living creatures of every kind: cattle and creeping things and wild animals of the earth of every kind…So God created humankind in his image*, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them, and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every living thing upon the earth.’ GENESIS 1:24-30

  • 25. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all their multitude. And on the seventh day God finished the work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all the work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all the work that he had done in creation. GENESIS 2:1-3

  • 27. After creation, God takes up God’s rest and rules from God’s residence. Rest involves engagement in the normal activities that can be carried out when stability has been achieved… When God rests in the temple it means God is taking command, is mounting God’s throne to assume God’s rightful place and proper role.
  • 28. COSMOS/TEMPLE Garden of Eden: sacred space Cosmos: temple for God Temple: microcosm(os) Days 1-6: Inauguration of temple Day 7: God indwells the temple (it doesn’t exist w/out that!)
  • 29. By naming the functions and installing the functionaries, and finally by God entering the resting place, the temple comes into existence – it is created in its inauguration, through a seven day dedication ceremony. (NOTE: this is the best way to understand “yom” or “day”)
  • 30. - The New Testament is more interested in Adam/Eve as human archetypes vs. biological progenitors
  • 31. Archetypal Adam and Eve refers to their representation of all humanity. (In the New Testament) the Adam of Paul is the archetypal (and not biological) Adam. Paul’s gospel does not require an “historical” Adam, but: - Adam/Eve made in God’s image - Who were commanded not to eat… - Who chose to disobey - Were thus heading towards death - Passed that on to all human beings
  • 32. - The New Testament is more interested in Adam/Eve as human archetypes vs. biological progenitors - The serpent would have been viewed as a ”chaos creature” from a non-ordered realm, actively promoting disorder
  • 33. - The New Testament is more interested in Adam/Eve as human archetypes vs. biological progenitors - The serpent would have been viewed as a ”chaos creature” from a non-ordered realm, actively promoting disorder - Jesus = the key to restoring order!
