Denis Lamoureux - The Meaning of Biblical Genealogies (4)

Part 4 of Denis Lamoureux's excellent series on Biblical genealogies can be found here, along with the PDF handout. Here, Lamoureux looks at the genealogies of the patriarchs, and once again reminds the neophyte not to read ancient genealogies through modern eyes. Thousands of years and a vast cultural chasm separate the ancient Near East from our world, and the amateur ignorant this fact who naively and arrogantly privileges this view will simply contribute to the growing pile of eisegesis that blights contemporary Christadelphian 'scholarship.'
