In the Beginning: The Temple

Did you know that the first chapters of Genesis use temple language? Yeah, me neither, until about six months ago.

I recently came across these videos from Daniel McGirr where he expounds on the theme of the temple, not just the earthly temple (tabernacle), but the cosmic temple. And of course, he teaches about this subject from the Ancient Near Eastern perspective.

You can watch his 8 part series here (click on the link):
