If days 1-3 of creation are ordinary days as indicated by Genesis 1, yet have no sun to produce sunlight, what was “first light?” This week, we give a few scientific suggestions. But are these scientific suggestions necessary? Our fundamental presuppositions about how we approach the Bible will determine how we approach this. In this lesson, we’ll explore this issue theologically and scientifically.

In this lesson, you’ll learn:

  1. Why the context of Genesis 1 demands literal days, regardless of “subjective interpretive difficulties.”
  2. The three things we must consider when interpreting the Bible.
  3. How ANE cosmology may (or may not) affect what the author of Genesis 1 meant to convey.
