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.
