Today's Reading: Genesis 28:10-17Daily Lectionary: Deuteronomy 27:1-26; Matthew 17:14-27Gen. 28:12. And he dreamed, and behold, there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven. And behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it!In the Name + of Jesus. Amen. Jacob goes camping.  Finds a nice spot.  Lays his head on a rock and looks up at the stars.  It sounds kind of nice.  Peaceful.  Put it on Instagram.  It's the chunk of our lives we want others to see.  Never mind the rest.  Jacob is “camping” because he stole from his brother out of his own father's hand and his brother is literally trying to kill him.  His father's heart is broken.  His mother put him up to it.  Dad's health is failing, so when Jacob left, stealing the blessing, he isn't sure he'll ever see him in this world again.  But that picture of him laying there looking up at the stars looks good. Millions of people do the same thing.  We hide the ugly. If we're so afraid of each other knowing, do you really want a God who looks down on you and sees it all? How is that comforting?  I'm not sure I want to be fully known. But it feels like heaven is a long way from here, and God, I need some help.  So God won't just look down on us from heaven.  He doesn't even just drop a ladder down for us to climb out of the pit we dug for ourselves in our sin.  He becomes the ladder. Heaven is not so far away.  Jesus doesn't just connect heaven and earth.  He's the location of heaven.  Heaven is wherever Jesus is.  And Jesus descends to this world for you. To pull you out of the pit and take your place. To die for sinners and grant you His life.  You are forgiven.  All your sins are bled for.  All the things you hide. God doesn't just see. He saves.  Church isn't a place to pretend things are fine.  It's a place to take your sins because God will meet you there to forgive them all.  In the Name + of Jesus. AmenIn a wat'ry grave are buried All our sins that Jesus carried; Christ, the Ark of Life, has ferried Us across death's raging flood.

Today we are going to cover gap theories and John Walton's temple idea. Will Barlow explains how gap theories work, including the classic idea that there's a gap of billions of years between Genesis 1.1 and 1.2 as well as the modified version. After explaining the pros and cons for these views, he briefly explains John Walton's theory that Genesis 1 solely focuses on function not physical creation.

Who is Sean Finnegan?  Read his bio here —— Notes —— Gap Theory There are various versions of Gap Theory: • Standard - multiple options here • Modified (“Preparing the Garden”) Pros of Standard Gap Theory Here are some pros with the standard formulation of Gap Theory: • It takes the word “day” literally as a 24-hour period • It fits directly with scientific evidence for an old Earth • It looks to the text (both in Genesis 1 and remote texts) to reach conclusions Internal Evidence Genesis 1:2   The earth was [or became] without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. “Was” or “became”? • Generally, in Hebrew, the verb “was” is unnecessary when talking about simple existence Genesis 23:17   So the field of Ephron in Machpelah, which was to the east of Mamre, the field with the cave that was in it and all the trees that were in the field, throughout its whole area, was made over “Was” or “became”? • Some scholars suggest that the verb is needed for the past tense, but here is a counterexample: Genesis 41:12a   A young Hebrew was [not in Hebrew] there with us, a servant of the captain of the guard. • So, some scholars believe that when the verb “was” is there, it takes on a more specific meaning: “become” • In other words, the word “was” takes on a meaning denoting change, not simple existence How did God create? Genesis 1:2   The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Compare with Jeremiah 4:23-26, Isaiah 34:11, Isaiah 45:18-19, among others Terms Used in Genesis • Genesis 1:5 “God called the light day” • Genesis 1:5 “God called the darkness night” • Genesis 1:8 “God called the expanse heaven” • Genesis 1:10 “God called the dry ground land” • Genesis 1:10 “God called the waters seas” Genesis 1:16   And God made the two great lights--the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night--and the stars. The word “made” does not generally mean “create.” In this context, it can be understood as God working on His creation. Genesis 1:17   And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, The word “set” can mean “appoint, designate, assign.” In this context, it can be understood as God providing a purpose for the stars, not the original creation. Is Gap Theory a recent invention? Detractors of Gap Theory say that it became popular after scientific evidence for an old Earth came in vogue around 200 years ago. • Jewish sources throughout time lend credence to the Gap interpretation • Ancient Christian sources, including Thomas Aquinas, mentioned the possibility of a gap Problems with Standard Gap Theory Here are some problems with the standard formulation of Gap Theory: • Gives Satan too much power • Grammatical concerns over “was” • There is no scientific evidence for a reconstituted heaven and Earth • Contextual concerns with Jeremiah 4 and Isaiah 34 • Genesis 1:28 says “fill,” not “replenish” Modified Gap Theory Modified Gap Theory holds that: • Genesis 1:1 refers to the beginning of creation • Genesis 1:2 focuses on God putting order into the wasteland, preparing the garden • Nothing in Genesis 1:2ff is talking about creation but rather about shaping the garden and the promised land Views Compatible with Either • The “God's Temple” interpretation — John Walton • Any non-literal interpretation that does not involve evolution Walton's “Temple” Interpretation Walton's view is based on 18 separate propositions. Proposition 1: Genesis 1 is ancient cosmology. “So if God aligned revelation with one particular science, it would have been unintelligible to people who lived prior to the time of that science, and it would be obsolete to those who live after that time…” “We gain nothing by bringing God's revelation into accordance with today's science. In contrast, it makes perfect sense that God communicated his revelation to his immediate audience in terms they understood.” (pg. 15) Giving an analogy from the ancient view of the liver, kidneys, and intestines: “Yet we must notice that when God wanted to talk to the Israelites about their intellect, emotions, and will, he did not revise their ideas of physiology and feel compelled to reveal the function of the brain. Instead, he adopted the language of the culture to communicate in terms they understood.” (pg. 16) Proposition 2: Ancient Cosmology is Function Oriented “Even staying in the realm of English usage we can see that we don't always use the verb create in material terms. When we create a committee, create a curriculum, create havoc or create a masterpiece, we are not involved in a material manufacturing process.” (pg. 23) “In this book I propose that people in the ancient world believed that something existed not by virtue of its material properties, but by virtue of its having a function in an ordered system.” (pg. 24) Walton believes that God's Temple is the heavens and the earth (Isaiah 66:1-2). Thus, the six-day creation account is not a scientific depiction of the creation of the Universe, but rather a description of God setting up his Temple and putting it in order. Parallels between Genesis 1 and other Temple accounts: • Seven day consecration of tabernacle in Exodus 39-40 • Seven-year construction of Solomon's Temple, followed by a seven-day dedication feast (1 Kings 6) • Description of Eden and the Temple have some similarities Bottom line: • Wants to interpret Genesis 1 in light of Ancient Near East culture and scientific understanding • Gives a context for the text that focuses on God's relationship with Israel, not with the creation of physical matter and space Problems with Walton's “Temple” View Here are some problems with the “Temple” view: • Atheists love to attack non-literal readings, since it shows that Jews and Christians can “pick and choose.” • There is no clear evidence that anyone has held this specific view at any point in Judeo-Christian history. • It leaves many questions unanswered, especially relating to science. How should we read Genesis 1? • Remember who the original audience was (coming out of slavery, coming out of idolatry) • Consider the text and the various options to interpret it • Consider the scientific evidence and how much weight you want to give it Resources • Young Earth Creationism (Answers in Genesis, Institute for Creation Research, The Genesis Flood by Morris and Whitcomb) • Day-Age (Hugh Ross, Gerald Schoeder) • Gap Theory (Arthur Custance, Jack Langford) • Temple (John Walton)

Who is Sean Finnegan?  Read his bio here —— Notes —— What have we seen so far? • Genesis was written to a group of ancient people coming out of slavery• The questions that they were asking of the text are different than the questions that we ask Many views of Genesis 1Perhaps the easiest way to divide them is: • Young-earth views• Old-earth views• Views compatible with either Old-Earth Views • “Day-Age” and modified “Day-Age”— Hugh Ross, Gerald Schroeder• “Theistic Evolution” — Francis Collins• Gap and modified gap — Scofield Bible• “Day-Age” and modified “Day-Age”— Hugh Ross, Gerald Schroeder• “Theistic Evolution” — Francis Collins• Gap and modified gap — Scofield Bible Day-AgeThere are various versions of Day-Age: • Standard• Earth-bound perspective (Hugh Ross) Pros of Standard Day-AgeHere are some pros with the standard formulation of Day-Age: • Generally, the sequence of events seems like it could be a plausible representation from an ancient person's perspective of the scientific order of events• In the Bible, “day” can mean more than one 24-hour period Examples of Longer “Days” Genesis 2:4   These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens. Genesis 4:3   In the course of time [yom - day] Cain brought to the LORD an offering of the fruit of the ground, Genesis 44:32   For your servant became a pledge of safety for the boy to my father, saying, 'If I do not bring him back to you, then I shall bear the blame before my father all my life.' [literally - “all my days”] Problems with Standard Day-AgeHere are some problems with the standard formulation of Day-Age: • The word “day,” when paired with a specific number (and the description of evening and morning), seem to indicate a 24-hour period• The order in Genesis 1 is not perfect scientifically Scientific Order vs. Genesis 1 Earth Bound Perspective Day-Age“The observer's vantage point is clearly stated: ‘the surface of the deep… over the waters.' Yet the vast majority of Genesis commentaries mistakenly proceed as if it were still high in the heavens somewhere in the starry realm above Earth.” (pg. 23)“The problem glares from the page at anyone slightly aware of how nature works. If the storyteller's viewpoint lies in the starry realm above, plants (created on Day Three) appear before the sun even exists (Day Four).” (pg. 23) • The Earth Bound Perspective of Day-Age does significantly help the issue dealing with the order of scientific information in comparison with Genesis 1• However, it does not resolve the issue surrounding the word “day” Problems with Modified Day-AgeHere are some problems with the modified formulation of Day-Age: • It still does not solve the problem that the order in Genesis 1 is not perfect scientifically.• There is no indication in the text anywhere that there should be gaps between each day of creation. Relativistic Day-Age“Starting with Day One, the results are, approximately: 7; 3.5; 1.8; 0.9; 0.5; 0.2 billions of years compressed within each successive 24-hour biblical day. This is in close agreement with the NASA number of 13.7 billion years.” Schroeder on “Day”“Almost a millennium ago, the biblical commentator Nahmanides realized that there must be a deeper meaning to the words “evening” and “morning.” He taught that the root or implied meaning of the Hebrew word usually translated “evening,” erev, is “mixture,” “chaos.” As the sun sets, he reasoned, vision becomes blurry, mixed. The implied meaning of the word translated “morning,” boker, is just the opposite. As the sun rises, vision becomes clear, orderly. Individual objects and colors can be discerned. The implied meaning of boker has within it the concept of order. The flow in simple terms is from P.M. to A.M. But the deeper meaning, the far more significant truth, is that six times over, at the conclusion of each day of creation, there was remarkable flow contrary to what is normally observed in unguided nature. Normally, in all events, order degrades to disorder. That is why leaves decay on the ground and a cup of hot tea becomes cool as it remains on the table. But in this particular part of the universe, the opposite occurred, and the Torah emphasizes this six times over in the subtle language “And there was evening and there was morning.” (pgs. 40-41) Collins on Genesis 1Genesis 2 then begins with a description of God resting on the seventh day. After this appears a second description of the creation of humans, this time explicitly referring to Adam. The second creation description is not entirely compatible with the first; in Genesis 1 vegetation appears three days before humans were created, whereas in Genesis 2 it seems that God creates Adam from the dust of the earth before any shrub or plant had yet appeared. (pg. 150)If a literal description was intended, why then are there two stories that do not entirely mesh with each other?(pg. 151) Problems with Collins' Non-Literal ViewHere are some problems with the Non-Literal view: • It doesn't attempt to make sense of the text in context. In fact, it uses supposed deficiencies to make a case that we should not take Genesis literally.• Atheists love to attack this perspective, since it shows that Jews and Christians can “pick and choose.” outro:

Today we'll begin to consider interpretive options for the first chapter of Genesis. We'll see three main groupings of theories, including those that propose a young earth of only thousands of years, those that see the earth as old (billions of years), and those that are compatible with either. After introducing the main options, Will Barlow goes on to explore young-earth creationism. He presents the advantages and disadvantages of this approach. Lastly, he shows why the "appearance of age" hypothesis fails to convince him.

Genesis was written to a group of ancient people coming out of slavery The questions that they were asking of the text are different than the questions that we ask How can we read Genesis 1? Does Genesis 1 begin with a continuous narrative or is there an initial creation in verse 1 followed by a “re-creation” or “reconstitution”? “Gap” theory says the latter Most other views take the former How can we read Genesis 1? How do we read the word day? Is a day a literal 24-hour period of time? Or is it something else? YEC and “gap” theory view the word “day” as a literal 24 hour period Most other views either don't require a day to be a specific length of time or say it is a longer period of time How can we read Genesis 1? Is Genesis 1 meant to be a description of creation itself? Or is it meant to describe how God ascribed function to already existing systems? “Modified gap” theory and Walton's “Temple” theory both focus on Genesis 1 describing function, not creation Most other views take Genesis 1 to be describing creation How can we read Genesis 1? How importantly should we weigh the scientific evidence? Walton's “Temple” theory does not care about modern science The mainline YEC view has an alternate view of the scientific evidence All other views rely on the scientific evidence Many views of Genesis 1 Perhaps the easiest way to divide them is: Young-earth views Old-earth views Views compatible with either Young-Earth Views Mainline YEC view - Answers in Genesis, Ken Ham, Institute for Creation Research (ICR) The “Appearance of Age” view Old-Earth Views “Day-Age” and modified “Day-Age”— Hugh Ross, Gerald Schroeder “Theistic Evolution” — Francis Collins Gap and modified gap — Scofield Bible Views Compatible with Either The “God's Temple” interpretation — John Walton Any non-literal interpretation that does not involve evolution Young-Earth Creationism Genesis 1:1-3   In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. Genesis 1:4-5   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. Positives of Young-Earth Creationism You can read Genesis 1 without importing any other ideas as a complete narrative Then, using the genealogies from other parts of the Bible, you get roughly 6,000 years of history Nothing in the Bible absolutely contradicts it Negatives of Young-Earth Creationism Some of the strongest arguments against YEC come from science. However: AIG and ICR have answers to basically any scientific question Both do a great job of attacking science at the weakest spot — assumptions and counterexamples Young-Earth Creationism Biblical questions about YEC: Would the original audience have cared about the age of the Earth? Are we sure that the genealogies are without gaps? Is Genesis 1 about creation or function? Is there really enough time for Satan to rebel (if you hold this view)? Scientific challenges to YEC: Basically all scientists view the Universe as old and the Earth as old Faraway stars appear to age the Universe at 13 billion years There is no reason to believe that the speed of light has changed over time Appearance of Age View This view accepts the scientific evidence and says that “God made the Universe appear old to test us.” I believe that God gave us our heads to think with. God does test us, but He is not a deceiver.
