Study of Genesis through Ancient Eyes begins June 24
On June 24, the Bible Exploration for Lunch League plans to begin viewing & discussing a 6-part video called "Origins Today: Genesis Through Ancient Eyes" by Wheaton College Professor John H. Walton, a Hebrew scholar. The video presents the perspective that the original recipients would have viewed the creation story in Genesis 1 as being like a temple dedication story that only describes function and says nothing about how creation was done or how long it took. All are welcome to join us in the Quarium WH8SW Tuesdays at noon. If you have questions contact bellweb@fnal.gov.
