#807 – How Old Is the Earth? Dr. Tremper Longman

Preston Sprinkle

Theology in the Raw

Tremper is one of the top evangelical Old Testament scholars alive today, and he’s an evolutionary creationist. In this conversation, Tremper explains why he believes that the science clearly shows that the universe and the earth are old and that this fits perfectly fine with Genesis 1-2. Genesis is simply uninterested in the age of the earth.

We discuss the meaning of “day,” the phrase “evening and morning,” the problem of the sun and moon being created on the 4th day (i.e. how do we determine a “day” without a sun or moon?), and the connection with the Sabbath command in Exod 20/Deut, which seems to assume a literal 24 hour day in Genesis 1.
