IN MY TORAH CLASS at Redeemer Sunday night I will...

1.   Teach how ancient Israel was a hearing-dominant culture, which means we have to think differently about “books” and “authors” in the ancient world.
2. Explain how Genesis 1 is to be understood as a Temple story, and what the words “God rested” mean.
3. Give the answer to “Who were the Nephilim in Genesis 6?”
4. Show a 3-minute video from N. T. Wright on how to interpret ancient texts.
5. Explain the old ages of the people in Genesis 5.
6.Have a lot of fun doing all of this and some more from Genesis 1-11!
