Genesis 3:8-10 – The Spirit of the Day

This week we discuss Genesis 3:8–10. Following Meredith Kline, we argue that in 3:8, God walks in the garden in the wind or spirit of the day. God’s Spirit is involved in this episode of judgment just as he is in later biblical instances of “the day of the Lord,” in which God comes among his people to interrogate them. As always, we welcome your feedback!

Genesis 3:1-7 – Temptation in Eden

On this week’s Proclaiming Christ, we discuss the temptation in Eden from Genesis 3:1–7. Man and woman begin naked and unashamed in a royal wedding, but abruptly, an evil serpent enters the picture and brings sin into the world. Why does sin have this opportunity to enter the world? How is the picture of sin in Genesis 3 an example of how sin works in general? Why do Adam and Eve take the forbidden fruit? How is this Scriptural episode connected to the gospel of Jesus Christ? Listen for answers to these questions, and we welcome your comments and feedback!

Genesis 2:18-24 – The Royal Wedding

On today’s episode we discuss Genesis 2:18–24. We begin today’s discussion by finishing up talking about the two trees in the garden from our previous episode and then we discuss the creation of woman. We consider how it was “not good” for Adam to be alone. Also, we talk about the fact that the woman is created from the man. We also consider the creation of woman in light of the covenant given to Adam and the mandate to take dominion, to be fruitful and multiply. Finally, we consider the way in which marriage is given as a picture of the the covenant relationship between God and His people, between Jesus Christ and His bride, the church. We invite your comments and feedback!

Genesis 2 – The Covenant of Works

On Today’s episode we discuss Genesis 2 broadly and the covenant God made with Adam. We consider objections to and reasons for saying that Adam was in a covenant. We discuss the nature of this covenant. We also consider how the “first Adam” relates to Jesus Christ, the “second” and “last Adam.” Finally, we discuss how Adam’s role as a covenant head relates to the gospel and the implications for denying this role for Adam. We invite your comments and feedback!

Genesis 2:8-15 — A Garden In Eden

On Today’s episode we discuss the garden of Eden and the description given to it in Genesis 2:8–15. We discuss how the garden motif found in Genesis 2 permeates the rest of Scripture. Also, we consider how the garden imagery is used within Scripture to describe God’s dwelling place among His people. We discuss similarities and polemical differences between the garden elements in Scripture and in Ancient Near Eastern writings. Finally we discuss Adam’s place in the garden and his priestly duty to “guard and keep” God’s garden.

Genesis 2:4-7 — Creation Expanded

In this episode of Proclaiming Christ we address the issue of whether there are two different creation accounts: one in chapter 1 and another in chapter 2. We discuss the covenant name of God which is introduced in chapter 2. We also reflect on the repeated use of the phrase “these are the generations of” which first appears in chapter 2 and provides a way of dividing the rest of the book. We also consider the description of the creation of man in chapter 2.

Genesis 1:1-2 – The Doctrine of God in Creation

In this episode we discuss the first two verses of Genesis 1. The episode focuses on the centrality of God in creation. We begin by discussing some interpretive assumptions involved in reading this passage. We also consider: the distinctiveness of the God of the Bible over against the pagan myths, God’s sovereignty and freedom in creation, creation ex nihilo, the creation of the invisible heavens and the visible earth, the initial formlessness of creation, and the work of God’s Spirit, and many other things.
