The Literary Framework Model of Genesis 1

December 27th, 2017

In this episode I present the final installment of my series on Genesis 1 and what I think is the best handling of the text - the Polemical Literary Framework. This is part 5 of the series so I recommend listening back to the previous episodes before jumping into this one. 

Enjoy the show!
