The Earth As The Temple of God | Workbook

Resource Information
Every great play has a prologue, a scene that foreshadows what the audience can expect. So, too, with the Bible. "The Earth is God's Temple: a Study of Genesis 1-2" is less about exegesis and word study and other traditional Bible study tools, and more about looking at the big-picture narrative of Scripture foreshadowed in its first two chapters. The study draws heavily from the work of Dr. John Walton, author of The Lost World of Genesis One, who describes the creation stories as ancient temple-building narratives. "The Earth is God's Temple" explores not only the temple/priest theme, but also touches on how we humans can find life by eating of the tree of life, and not from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
