Redeemer Seminary invites you to join us for a lecture series with Adjunct Professor of Old Testament Dr. Doug Green on November 2&3 on the book of Genesis. The lecture series is titled “Genesis: What’s it all about?”, where the question will ultimately be asked: How is the story about Jesus Christ good news for a humanity that longs to be human again?
We are all fascinated by stories of origins: the origins of the cosmos, of humanity, of nations, and families. To know the beginning of our collective stories creates our identities, our worldviews, and gives meaning and direction to our lives. That’s why the book of Genesis is so important: it’s the Bible’s book of origins. But how does it stack up against modern, scientific, materialist stories of origins? Is it simply dated, irrelevant and just plain wrong? On the contrary, precisely because Genesis places Israel’s God at the center of its story of beginnings, it addresses our “big questions” in a powerfully countercultural way – questions like: what does it mean to be truly human? what’s wrong with the human condition?
