Biblical Genre and Relational Truths

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”).

Good theology and good science meet at BioLogos. I cannot over-estimate the missional importance of this for our times.
