TCA Lesson 021: Placing Adam in Humanity’s History (BOH Series)

Jan 4, 2018 | Creation, Podcast

In the evolutionary timescale, humanity came on the scene about 100,000 to 400,000 years ago, depending on who you ask. But the Bible seems to record an entirely different chronology. Is there any evidence—biblical or otherwise—that mankind is only around 6,000 years old? In this lesson we’re taking a biblical look at how we can know the universe was created by God only around 6,000 years ago. The Bible gives a strict chronology of human history, and that’s our subject matter for today.

In this lesson, you’ll learn:

  1. Why “day,” in Genesis 1, means a literal solar day.
  2. Why the order of creation is a huge stumbling block for those accept a “deep time” view of Genesis.
  3. How the Genesis 5 and 11 genealogies convey a strict chronology of human history.
