Check out this 3-minute clip from N.T. Wright talking about what’s actually important in Genesis. According to Wright, people who think the point of Genesis is to figure out how many days creation took and how young the earth is, etc, are completely missing the point. I agree with him. What do you think?
Where Does the Gospel Start?
I few days ago I was talking with a friend who asked me, “How would you explain the gospel?” I shared with him what I saw as the essential “nuggets” of the story. He expressed surprise that I started my explanation with God created a very good world. This got me thinking about where people generally start when they are asked to explain the good news of Jesus.
