My Book

I've written an academic book for lay people that biblically critiques the Creation Museum. While guiding readers through the Museum, the book is also an introduction into how to read the Bible in its ancient Near Eastern context. Available here.

  3. Hey, you said that interpreting Behemoth and Leviathan as dinosaurs is something recent, and that the most believed interpretation was that the Behemoth was a wild ox, however this is not how either Christians or Jews have traditionally understood these creatures. The early Christians called these creatures “dragons”:

    The Behemoth is a dragon, that is, a land animal, just as the Leviathan is an aquatic sea animal. (St. Ephraim the Syrian, Commentary on Job 40.15, from CatenaBible)
