 								Genesis and History

Show Summary Details

Preview

Genesis is less and more than exact history. It is less, because in light of modern science and history, it shows virtually no knowledge of the origins of human life or of Israel. It is more, because it reveals the essence of historical existence and goes into greater depth than most historical studies.

Keywords: historical existence; history; humankind; Israel; origin; science
