Buried Talents: A Note

I’ve added some material to “Avoiding Our Biases and Bad Habits” starting at Overlooking the Old Testament and the Gospels.

That section is new, and the final section is expanded.

    Another way to look at it is that Paul sheds light on the meaning of Genesis. ("The old testament is the new testament concealed; the new testament is the old testament revealed.") As an example, he clearly says that woman was made *for* man (1 Cor 11:9). That gives us an explanation of Gen 2:18, inspired by the Holy Spirit. And in 1 Tim 2:13 he tells us that the consequences of Eve's sin persist even into the Christian era.

    Exegesis of Genesis that attempts to remove role distinctions seem to me to be arguing with the apostle Paul.

    I have no interest in removing role distinctions. Paul plainly approaches men and women in different terms at times. I just think we've misunderstood what that difference is.
