Biblical Genre and Relational Truths

features Chris Tilling

Theologian Chris Tilling, “The author of Genesis was not asking the questions that we are often asking in a biological sense.” (3:30)

In this video, video, theologian Chris Tilling, New Testament Tutor for St. Mellitus College and St Paul's Theological Centre in London, discusses biblical genre and the relational truth of Scripture. Tilling notes that when we read the biblical text, we bring our own presuppositions and assumptions to the text (what theologians call “eisegesis”).

BioLogos is one of the very most important ministries in existence today because it so effectively addresses a formidable crisis the Church faces.  As militant skeptics wield science to destroy the faith of believers, BioLogos exposes the unscientific philosophical presuppositions behind their arguments while vividly demonstrating the consonance between what God has revealed in His Word and what He reveals as we explore His creation (science = the exploration of God’s creation).
