Our summer series focusing on the creation story from the beginning of Genesis continued. Dr. Christopher Hays, president of Scholar Leaders, joined us this Sunday. He shared the Babylonian creation story, the “Enuma Elish,” comparing and contrasting it with the biblical creation story. The Enuma Elish provides insight into how the contemporaries of the ancient Israelites would have understood and told the story of the universe. The biblical creation account serves as a better model for interreligious engagement than our current model of rhetorical and sometimes military warfare.
