In this week’s class, Ross covers the second Torah reading according to the ancient triennial cycle (Genesis 2:4-3:21). In this teaching, Ross focuses primarily on the creation of Adam. Along the way, he also answers several key questions derived from the story. For what purpose was “man” created? What is a “soul?” Can a soul die, or is the soul immortal? What set things up for the first transgression? These and many more insights are shared in this class on the bringings forth of skies and land. Below you will find links to the audio and video files, as well as the PDF for the section of Torah studied this week. The translation is the work of Dr. James D Tabor. You can read more about this exciting translation on the website for the Transparent English Bible (TEB).
