O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
Preterist interpretation of scripture seems to be moving at such a pace that I'm finding it difficult to keep up. Regarding Genesis, is anyone prepared to analyse it into chapters?
What would be helpful for me is to have some indication as to which chapters are considered to be solely allegorical, which ones are definitely thought to be historical, and which ones can be considered to be both allegorical and historical.
I'm happy of course to create a 4th category if need be, entitled "Don't Know" !
It's getting to the stage where I'm even wondering now if Abraham was a real person and if so, how does the genealogy of Genesis 11 fit?! But perhaps he's not - given the prophetic implication of Isaac's sacrifice?
Perhaps the answers may raise further questions, and hence more discussions
I'm happy with Peshat and Remez.
Not sure about Derash though.......this might have led the Jews into error
Sod - Kabbalah. No....I don't believe in this at all
I think the in the Book of Genesis there are real people and real events, with allegories woven into the stories.So its both real and allegorical all at the same time .
