Trinity Symposium: William Barrick, Richard Hess, Peter Leithart

And the Genealogies Begat Controversies: History and Theology in the Biblical Genealogies


Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

February 28, 2017  | ATO Chapel, 7–9:00 pm

With the right skills, technical know-how, and a little bit of family history, ancestry.com can tell a person quite a bit about where they’ve come from. We can even get a good idea about when our family entered the country, their migratory patterns, and even some famous and infamous events along the way. The Bible is also concerned with genealogical records. Matthew traces Jesus back to Abraham; Luke to Adam. The entire book of Genesis develops through genealogical records. These texts have been the basis of the Church’s dating the age of the earth and remain a central exegetical detail for the young earth position. In this symposium, Drs. Leithart, Hess, and Barrick will discuss why the biblical genealogies matter and how we are to understand their historical and theological importance.

This lecture is free and open to the public.
