Jesus Understood Genesis As Real History

It's simple. Jesus understood Genesis as real history... exactly as it is written. I'm going to do the same. I'm putting my trust in Jesus, not Darwin

"So far as I know, there is no professor of Hebrew or Old Testament at any world-class university who does not believe that the writer(s) of Genesis 1–11 intended to convey to their readers the ideas that:

  • "Creation took place in a series of six days which were the same as the days of 24 hours we now experience.
  • "The figures contained in the Genesis genealogies provided by simple addition a chronology from the beginning of the world up to later stages in the biblical story.
  • "Noah’s flood was understood to be world-wide and extinguish all human and animal life except for those in the ark."

-- James Barr, Oriel Professor of the Interpretation of the Holy Scripture at Oxford University (England). The above was written in a letter to David C.C. Watson, on April 23, 1984. Dr. Barr is not a Christian, nor is even friendly to the creation account in Genesis. As a consistent neo-orthodox Jew, he does not believe Genesis. However, being a Hebrew scholar he understands and admits what the Hebrew clearly says.

Both the New Testament writers and Jesus quoted and alluded to Genesis over 100 times. A list is provided in this article: The use of Genesis in the New Testament (CMI Article). Jesus, and the New Testament writers (inspired by God) spoke about and referenced Genesis, treating it as real history.

Jesus said that men and women were there from the beginning of creation. What comes before the beginning of creation? Nothing! No apes. No big bang. Nothing comes before THE beginning. Everything was created by God exactly as a plain reading of Genesis describes, and Jesus confirms this.

headlights coming

What you believe does not determine reality nor truth. That would make you god. But you ARE NOT god. You don't control the universe. You cannot change reality. Let's try an experiment. At about midnight stand in the middle of the road just around a corner where it is hard to be seen... at night, wearing all black. When headlights start lighting up the curve, just believe that whatever is coming does not exist. Stand firm, if you don't believe a vehicle is coming, then nothing is coming. You are perfectly safe... until reality hits.

You are now standing before Jesus. You are dead. It's judgment day. You don't want to believe it's Jesus and you will be judged. But it is. That's reality.

Judgment only takes a moment, the verdict is obvious, and you know it is correct. You are guilty. You've lied, stolen and sexually lusted after others (Matthew 5:28)... you have disobeyed God. Trusting Jesus is the only answer, but it's too late. You had your last chance just before you died.

You know it's no use to protest, but still you scream out, 'I didn't know!'

But you did know. All of creation declared God's glory, His invisible attributes, and His power. You have no excuse. You willingly rejected Jesus Christ (God).

Is this you? Are you saying, 'Hell isn't so bad, I'll be with my friends.' You know that's not true. There are no friends in hell. No beer... not even water to cool your lips. There is NOTHING good in hell.

So I beg you, consider these words. Trust Jesus as having paid your penalty for every way you've have rejected God. Trust Jeus to save you from hell and bring you into the presense of God.

Trust Jesus. Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved. - Acts 16:31
