White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

Genesis: Just Another Creation Myth? 

The first few chapters in Genesis are some of the most hotly debated in Christian circles. What did Moses intend for his readers to understand when he penned the Bible’s creation narrative? What did he know about the creation myths of the surrounding nations, and how might that impact our understanding today? In this episode of White Horse Inn, Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, and Bob Hiller model charitable disagreement as they represent and discuss different interpretations of Genesis 1 and 2.  


“When Moses is writing Genesis, he’s saying, your God who chose you is the God of heaven and earth. He’s not a local God, but he’s the God over all creation.

— Bob Hiller
