In this sermon, Pastor Ortberg sheds new light on the meaning of Genesis 1 by bringing his 21st century listeners back into the text’s ancient cultural context. Through this, we can have a greater appreciation for God’s message of his sovereignty and care over all of his creation. The work of Old Testament scholar John Walton is also referenced.

BioLogos has built an impressive and still-growing network of small-“o” orthodox Christians from the sciences, arts & humanities, theology, biblical studies, and pastoral ministry. What unites us is a shared passion for persuading all faithful Christians to see the consensus results of the sciences not as part of some rival worldview but as a divinely-blessed means to deepen our understanding of God’s creation.
