Jesus Understood Genesis As Real History
It's simple. Jesus understood Genesis as real history... exactly as it is written. I'm going to do the same. I'm putting my trust in Jesus, not Darwin
"So far as I know, there is no professor of Hebrew or Old Testament at any world-class university who does not believe that the writer(s) of Genesis 1–11 intended to convey to their readers the ideas that:
- "Creation took place in a series of six days which were the same as the days of 24 hours we now experience.
- "The figures contained in the Genesis genealogies provided by simple addition a chronology from the beginning of the world up to later stages in the biblical story.
- "Noah’s flood was understood to be world-wide and extinguish all human and animal life except for those in the ark."
-- James Barr, Oriel Professor of the Interpretation of the Holy Scripture at Oxford University (England). The above was written in a letter to David C.C. Watson, on April 23, 1984. Dr. Barr is not a Christian, nor is even friendly to the creation account in Genesis. As a consistent neo-orthodox Jew, he does not believe Genesis. However, being a Hebrew scholar he understands and admits what the Hebrew clearly says.
Both the New Testament writers and Jesus quoted and alluded to Genesis over 100 times. A list is provided in this article:
The use of Genesis in the New Testament (CMI Article). Jesus, and the New Testament writers (inspired by God) spoke about and referenced Genesis, treating it as real history.
Jesus said that men and women were there from the beginning of creation. What comes before the beginning of creation? Nothing! No apes. No big bang. Nothing comes before THE beginning. Everything was created by God exactly as a plain reading of Genesis describes, and Jesus confirms this.

THE WIDE OR
Most people choose the wide road. It's the way everyone else is going. It's wide and it's an easy road, so it must be the right road. But it's the wrong way!
Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. - Matthew 7:13
The wide road, and wide gate is our choice based what feels good. But our feelings (our heart) are deceptive.
The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; - Jeremiah 17:9
Christianity... meaning belief in Jesus Christ... is not a blind faith driven by emotions. It is an informed faith, based on historical facts and truth.
The truth is that we are law breakers (sinners) in need of a Savior from the just wrath of God. That Savior is Jesus Christ.
Trusting Jesus is not the easy way. It is the narrow road, through a narrow gate, and it can be difficult at times. But it is the right way to go. And it is the only way to have eternal life in Christ Jesus.
Trust Jesus. Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved. - Acts 16:31
