Hello. I am Superdadsuper an Administrator at Biblicalapedia the wiki all about ancient-history in a biblical aspect (this wiki focuses more on the historicity of the Bible rather than the spiritual). I am very excited and I hope you are as well about our new Bible Book Club! I was wondering if you all are interested, have, questions, comments or concerns, if you could post below to get us started. Thanks!
Due to technical difficulties the video will not be live and instead will be prerecorded. Sorry for the inconvience.
A suggestion SDS, a place for better powerpoint presentation
s Soon as possible awesome, I will look into that Miyan. I hope I can do it live next time, another issue aside from technical is I was a little nervous as well speaking live in front of people on the internet unedited, I didn't prepare myself to speak as much, since I was rushed setting up the technical aspects. Sorry everyone about that, hopefully we can do it live next time. Also guys feel free to start discussion of Genesis, what you liked, favorite parts of the account, what was interesting, what was boring etc.
The creation of man, in Bible, oh well, you all know that...but how about the Darwin theory, that mankind evolved from ape, science vs religion?
Okay, so we have decided not to do a video. However we can still disucss Genesis here. So my thoughts on Genesis, I have read it several times, but never before I have thought about the literary anaylsis it could be given. In all reality Genesis doesn't have much of a plot that flows. It is scattered around to many different accounts. They are all connected, most of them being lienage and ancestorial accounts (as in we have the account of Abraham, then we move on to his son, their sons etc). Instead of Genesis having one giant plot, its more or less a collection of mutiple subplots (those in themselves flow together well) that have a related theme or are continuing family lienage. As we hit towards Abraham and the patriachs Genesis actually flows into a bit more of a plot, but Adam and Eve are breifly covered by ancestorial records, and then jumps right to Noah and then after Noah does the same thing. The overall inciting incident happens in the Garden, and this also continues throughout the whole Bible. When the ancestry is talked about in various places throughout Genesis it skips on a lot of history, but since God (Yahweh) didn't tell Moses to write all of their accounts down then I guess it isn't important. And each little subplot has a resolution, but the overall resolution of Genesis to solve the conflict is sequeled into Exodus, and then the even larger conflict of Sin hasn't yet been resolved yet (if you read Revelation you know what I mean). So also guys please feel free to contribute your own discussion about it, and I will be chatting with Asnow about ways to make this book club more effecitve.
Sorry this is late, but we will be reading Exodus!
The next Book is Exodus and this post is located here
