Genesis 1 as Temple Text

We are told in the New Testament, “Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was might in words and in deeds,” (Acts 7:22).

And yet for some reason when some of us present that idea that Moses wrote Genesis 1 in the same literary and cultural context that he was educated in, we are accused of denying inspiration or inerrancy. Here I continue my series that basically argues, “Yes… Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians… and he demonstrated his genius for it in his writings where he polemicized the very Egyptian worldview that he was raised in.”

In this episode I lay out some of the evidence that Genesis 1 was in fact a Temple Text.

Enjoy the show.
