Reading Genesis 1 through Ancient Eyes with John Walton (Video)


John Walton here makes the case that the creation narrative in Genesis is a story of function and order, not material origins. Watch to find out how this has a bearing on our interpretation of these events.

Seedbed was honored to host Dr. John Walton of Wheaton College at McKenna Chapel on March 13th, 2014.

John Walton’s work in Genesis 1-3 offers a fresh perspective on the complex issue of faith and science by seeking to understand the message of scripture within its ancient context.


Dr. John Walton is Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College. His recent research has focused on comparative studies between the Old Testament and the ancient Near East. He is a leading expert on Genesis and has a passion for teaching the text in a way that sheds light on complex issues between science and faith.
