Days of Creation

Professor James Barr, of Oxford, although he rejects Genesis as sober history, wrote: “So far as I know, there is no professor of Hebrew or Old Testament at any world class university who does not believe that the writers of Genesis 1-11 intended to convey to the readers the ideas that

(a) creation took place in a series of six days, which were the same as the 24-hour days we now experience,

(b) the figures contained in the Genesis genealogies provided by simple addition a chronology from the beginning of the world up to later stages in the Biblical story,

(c) Noah’s Flood was understood to be worldwide and extinguished all human and animal life except those in the Ark.
