Lesson 1: A Rib, a Snake and a Flood

When it comes to scientific theories of origins, as Christians we should hold firm to Scripture – which never changes, and hold loosely to human theories – which often change. In this series, we will examine the early history in Genesis, the supporting scientific evidences and explore the main controversies which often raise doubts for some Christians. Be prepared for critical thinking!

Have you ever discussed the first few chapters of Genesis with someone and felt inadequate to defend or perhaps embarrassed about its account of history? Or are you under the impression that all of science somehow disproves the Genesis narrative? In this lesson we will examine four components of early Genesis history and how they may be supported scientifically. But above all else, as Christians, we should hold firm to Scripture and hold loosely to theories.
