NCCL: Paradise Lost
In this seminar we will examine in detail the creation and first days of humanity in the figures of ‘Adam and Eve’ in Genesis 2 & 3. Is this account primarily a story of the Creation and Fall of humanity or is it perhaps an account of lost immortality?—providing the reason why we must die? Is it an account of the advent of evil into the world? Was the Garden of Eden in fact Paradise?

Paying close attention to the biblical text—and other ancient Near Eastern creation accounts—we will examine the above questions and more. As always, please bring a Bible and your curiosity.
