Video Conversation : Genesis 3, Is There Life Before Death?


David Goa talks to Brad Jersak about Genesis 3, the meaning of the story and its existential implications for the reader and the believer.

Excerpt: “Genesis 3 is a myth, it is a narrative about how something comes to be. Mircea Eliade always talked about Myths as being stories of creation. How does iron come to be, how does steel come to be, how does the art of refining come to be. So myths are the stories about how things come to be. The amazing thing about the story of Genesis three is that it is a myth that doesn’t have to do with God, and as such it is about how death comes to be.”
