Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

Here is a good article from our host site... The Genesis Flood Why the Bible Says It Must be Local http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/localflood.html I can truthfully say that I have read the article a few times, and drafted my response and revised it as much; perhaps because I’m a newbie. I ...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

DB: So from that perspective, you could say that the extent of the Noahic covenant includes everyone who dwells in the same land that descendants of Noah are dwelling in. Of course, IF the flood of Noah was NOT worldwide, then greater humanity is a mixture of ancient humans not only descended from ...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

Again, context is critical as is the text itself. The context of the Noahic covenant deals with Noah, his descendants, and the earth/land that they dwell in. One more quick comment on the Noahic Covenant. In the 5000 years since God made his covenant with Noah and his descendants, descendants of No...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

In my opinion, every covenant from Edenic to the New has an extension to all of humanity, thus should be less quick to limit the Noahic Covenant. Based on this hermeneutical model, “all the families of the earth shall be blessed” in the Abrahamic Covenant could be relegated to symbolic and limited ...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

Reread it. Genesis 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: It is quite clear that it is saying the lights are IN the firmament. That's because there are lights in the...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

Stu, look at a kid riding a merry-go-round horse - he's fixed to the horse, even if it's going up and down, and then that is going round and round. If you had a small wind-up merry-go-round on the back of a moving truck - same thing - the riders are fixed to their horses, up and down, round and rou...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

I see a lot of figures of speech that are no more or less technically accurate than... "the sun rises in the east and sets in the west" But I don't see anything in those figures of speech that state that the earth is flat. Just like everyone who uses the phrase "the sun rises in the east and sets i...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

Just a quick word on Heiser. You know that he says that the Bible teaches a flat earth and that the Hebrews believed that the earth was flat, immovable and had a solid firmament encompassing the entire earth. Let me just add though that while he does teach that, he doesn't hold to that view himself...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

Would the same interpretation apply to all covenants in the Bible including the New Covenant? The same principle applies to both the Old Covenant and the New Covenant. God explicitly states that both the Old and New Covenants were covenants that God made with the 'House of Israel'. However, in his ...

Re: Dr. Mike Heiser on Noah's Flood

In the Noahic Covenant, God promised (with two “never again”) not destroy destroy all flesh and the earth with a flood. If it was just regional or local then God would have broken his promise. The immediate context trumps word studies. Yes... the immediate context is critical here. Here is the cove...
