Reasons to Believe
October 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Join us for our Reasons to Believe chapter meeting on Fri., Oct. 11, at 7:00PM in the Family Center Rooms 524-525. Our speaker will be Dr. Rodney Whitefield, an acknowledged expert in Biblical Hebrew. His topic will be “Genesis as Mission to the Hebrews of the Exodus.” Recent advances in understanding the Egyptian context of the Exodus permit identifying Genesis 1:1-18 as a written argument against the Egyptian gods of the Heliopolis creation story. We will learn about the polemic nature of Genesis 1, the Heliopolis creation story, and how Genesis 1 contradicts that story.
