with John Walton
This unit will address the role of Genesis 1-11 in the book of Genesis and the coherence of the narratives that comprise this section of Scripture. There will be a focus on understanding the biblical text within its Ancient Near Eastern context. On this basis conclusions will be drawn concerning the theological message of Genesis 1-11 and its various parts.
