Actual 24 hr days
  • Gen 1:5 defines how “yom” is being used in Gen 1.

  • Gen 1 = logical order of creation not time
  • Revelational day
  • Pictorial days
  • Literary Framework
day age theory
Day-Age Theory
  • Yom (day) has a wide variety of meanings
  • Period of light as opposed to darkness (Ps 32:4; Judg 19:8)
  • An age -- the Day of the LORD (Joel 1:15... day with the Lord as 1000 years Ps. 90:4)
  • Time of person’s life (1 Sam 3:2)
  • Sun not made till day 4
  • Too much work on day 6

what do we learn
What do we learn?
  • What do we learn about God from the creation in Gen. 1 (Ps 19:1-6)
  • Doxology // greatness
  • Creativity --forming /filling
how old does the bible say
How old does the Bible say?
  • “When” not a test of orthodoxy; there is NOT one clear verse where the Bible says how old
  • Be careful pushing today’s science into or out of the Bible (cf. Ps 104:3 poison of asps; Isa 11:12 flat earth; Isa 40:22 circle of earth; Job 9:6 pillars of earth)
  • Major on majors; attitude check
genealogy not chronology
Genealogy not = chronology
  • Just add times of genealogies of Gen 5 & 11
  • Gaps in genealogy: Mt 1:8 cf. 1 Chr 3:11; 14=DVD
  • Leaves you with 4004 BC; no one holds this—Jericho = 8000 BC
fiat fulfillment pattern affet
Fiat - Fulfillment Pattern AFFET
  • And God said... and it was so...
    • Announcement: And God said
    • Command: Fiat: Let there be
    • Fulfillment: and there was
    • Evaluation: and God saw it was good
    • Temporal framework: day 1
  • Heb 11:3 by the “word of God” the worlds were framed
  • Ps 33:6, 9 creation by the word of His mouth
