  • The Duration of the Israelite Sojourn In Egypt

    There has been a division among scholars as to whether the sojourn of the Israelites in Egypt was 215 (or 210) years long, or 430 years long. Although, along with Genesis 15:13-21, Exodus 12:40 is our primary source, evidences other than the variants...

  • The Genesis Flood: An Interpretive Key to the Past

    Excerpt For centuries, the Biblical Flood described in chapters 6–8 in the book of Genesis was considered global, cataclysmic and historical. Since the late 18th century, however, the historicity of the Flood has come under constant attack, and is now...

  • The Discovery of the Sin Cities of Sodom and Gomorrah

    the centuries have suggested locations both north and south (Mulder 1992: 101 102). The reference to "bitumen pits" in Genesis 14:10, however, tips the scale in favor of a southern location (Howard 1984). Bitumen (a natural petroleum product similar to...

  • The Joseph Narrative (Genesis 37, 39-50)

  • Locating Sodom: A Critique of the Northern Proposal

    The geology of the plain south of the Dead Sea also points to this area as being the location of the Cities of the Plain. Genesis 14:10 states, “now the Valley of Siddim was full of tar (ḥēmār) pits.” Ḥēmār is bitumen, a naturally occurring petroleum...

  • Why Did God Send the Flood?

    The Biblical account of the great flood of Noah's day opens with an enigmatic passage, Genesis 6: 1-4. The record of Noah, it seems, could easily have omitted them, going directly from the end of chapter five to 6: 5 without losing any essential...

  • Patriarchal Wealth and Early Domestication of the Camel

    The Genesis account of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob suggests all three were wealthy men. While scholars generally view references to camels in relation to these patriarchs as anachronistic, author Stephen Casear points out that is not the case. He adds...

  • The Genesis Philistines

    The Philistines we encounter in the books of Judges and 1 and 2 Samuel are well known to us. However, skeptics have claimed that references to the Philistines in the book of Genesis are a fictional anachronism. According to the Bible, the Philistines...

  • An Army of Straw Men: Responding to Ronald Hendel

  • The Crumbling of Creation: The Cause of the Earth's Decay and God's Glorious Cure

    Is man the basic cause of all the earth's problems? Would the planet be better off if man did not exist on it at all? Some environmentalists think so. For example, philosopher Paul Taylor states, “Given the total, absolute, and final disappearance of...
