In this brief video I ask the question, “What was Moses doing when he penned the creation account in Genesis 1-2?” In day-to-day communications we typically recognize the difference between what a person says and what they mean, and intuitively interpret them accordingly. However, we often don’t notice a third component: what a person is doing with his or her words. Using the missiological category of “contextualization,” I argue that Moses was evangelizing, and that, as a missionary, he was spectacularly successful.
The explanation for this video says “I argue that Moses was evangelizing”. Although I think the claims in this video may be true, there is no supporting evidence. Is there a video where the evidence is given?
Hi Brandon, good to hear from you. The time allotted for my talk for that event was only about 15 minutes. It’s actually the introduction to another talk that is much longer where I give much more background. That longer talk will be published in another week or two. Stay tuned! Ken
Thanks, Ken. I will stay tuned in.
