G.K. Beale: The Garden of Eden, God, Adam, Eve & Me?
The Laymens Lounge
As we make our way through Genesis 1–3, we will glean three interrelated points: (1) God creates the heavens and the earth to be his cosmic sanctuary, where he sovereignly rules and dwells. All creation is designed to house the glory of God. (2) God creates Adam and Eve as kings to rule on his behalf and as priests to serve and mediate his glory. Humanity is created to remain wholly dependent on God and represent him faithfully on the earth. (3) In an attempt to be independent of God, the original couple succumbs to the serpent’s temptation. But, despite the fall, God promises to overcome evil and establish a perfect dwelling place for his glory and kingdom. Join us as we discuss with The Rev. Dr. Gregory Beale his book “The Story Retold: A Biblical - Theological Introduction to the New Testament” and what the implications are of our priesthood in the cosmic sanctuary and our everyday lives.
