    #20 | The Beginning of the End Part 5

    #20 | The Beginning of the End Part 5

    In this episode we talk about the narrative context for the creation of Eve from the side of Adam, and how this story illustrates what it was like for God to meet with Adam in the garden/temple and partner with him in his task of ruling over creation. We also briefly introduce how the marriage relationship between Adam and Eve are used by Paul as an analogy for the relationship between Christ and the church. 

    Genesis 2:18-24

    #19 | The Beginning of the End Part 4

    In this episode we look at the moment where the villain enters the story - death. We talk about what the phrase "you will surely die" actually means, and how it points us to Adam and Eve experiencing death as both a process and an event. We also talk about why death is the ultimate villain in the Bible, and why the enemy sought to leverage death against Adam and Eve. It cuts their developmental process short, limiting our ability to reach the fullness of who God created us to be. 

    Genesis 2:16-17

    "In the day" used to designate a time period longer than a day - Genesis 2:4. Also see Jeremiah 7:21-23 and compare with Exodus 19:1-6. Jeremiah says that God spoke the words "Obey my voice" to Israel "in the day" that he brought them out of the land of Egypt. Yet according to Exodus 19:1-6, God says this to Israel 3 months after the actual day that they left Egypt. "In the day" is somewhat of an idiom - a phrase that communicates more or less than the literal words, by themselves, actually communicate. For example, "that took forever" or "give me a minute..."

    #18 | The Beginning of the End Part 3

    #18 | The Beginning of the End Part 3

    In this episode we look at Adam's job description, and how it continues the theme in Genesis 2 of the garden of Eden being a temple where God not only dwells, but also where God wants to consistently meet with Adam. We take a closer look at the terms "tend" and "keep" and how they are connected to the roles and responsibilities of priests in the Israelite Tabernacle of Meeting. Essentially, Adam is being framed as a priest in God's garden temple of Eden.

    We then show how Jesus, as our High priest, fulfills this priestly role by being faithful to God in tending and keeping the things that he was given stewardship of - his body and followers.

    Genesis 2:15 - the text we focus on in the podcast

    Numbers 3:5-9 - the priests in the Tabernacle are given the same roles and responsibilities as Adam, but for "tending" and "keeping" the Tabernacle and its ministry. Essentially the Tabernacle is a microcosm of the garden of Eden, which in turn was the place where God dwelled on earth with his divine council.

    Hebrews 3:1-2 - Jesus is named our High Priest and was faithful to God

    #17 | The Beginning of the End Part 2

    #17 | The Beginning of the End Part 2

    In this episode we continue to look at the original scene in the garden, but we focus on the two trees located at the center of the garden - the tree of life, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. We talk about how the tree of life shows up at the end of the story in the book of Revelation.  

    We also discuss the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and how evil existed before Adam and Eve sinned, and how that should shape the way we see God and his motives for putting the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden.  



    Genesis 2:9

    Tree of life at the end of the story: Revelation 22:1-5

    The Hebrew word for “evil” used for damage or harm: Genesis 26:29; 31:29

    The Hebrew word for “evil” used to describe the famished cows, implying a deficit: Genesis 41:3,4,19, 20, 21, 27

    The Hebrew word for “evil” is juxtaposed with the Hebrew word for peace/shalom, implying dysfunctional, or disordered: Isaiah 45:7. Also used to describe the breaking of something, or brokenness: Jeremiah 11:16, Job 34:24

    One of the Greek words often translated as “evil” - poneros - means pain, or useless trouble, but can also mean poverty, or deficit.

    #16 | The Beginning of the End Part 1

    #16 | The Beginning of the End Part 1

    In this episode we start a new series titled, The Beginning of the End. This title is intended to communicate several things at once. First, we’re going back to Genesis to figure out how death - an “end” - enters into the picture. But we’re also going back to the beginning to discover connection points with how the story of the Bible ends. This series will be foundational to every other episode from here on out because the more we know about the problem Jesus came to solve, the more we will know about the solution Jesus provides.

    Specifically, in this episode we look at how God created the garden of Eden to function like the entrance to a temple - a place where he would dwell and meet with Adam on a regular basis, partnering with him in his lifelong, developmental journey of imaging God.

    Genesis 2:8

    The entrance to the Tabernacle/Temple was on the east side: Exodus 27:9-18; Numbers 2:1-34 (note vs. 17);

    The Tabernacle was repeatedly called the Tabernacle of Meeting: Exodus 27:21;28:43; 29:4,10,11,30,32,42,

    #15 | Jesus the Second Adam Part 5

    #15 | Jesus the Second Adam Part 5

    In this episode we close out our discussion of Jesus as the second Adam...for now. We work our way through the rest of 1 Corinthians 15 and talk about the transformation that Jesus brought about in his human nature, all the way into the resurrection and glorification of his humanity.

    We also touch on transhumanism, what it is, it’s inherent limitations, and how the resurrection of Jesus reveals God as the only source of our future transformation and immortality. As Paul says, flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.

    1 Corinthians 15:50-58
