The Old Testament of the Old Testament

The book of Genesis provides the foundation for understanding the trajectory of God’s work to restore the state of shalom that was lost as a result of the fall. In this sense it serves as the Old Testament to the rest of the Old Testament, and subsequently for the coming of Jesus Christ. This workshop covers the book of Genesis with a primary focus on how it provides these theological foundations.

Dr. David Adams

Associate Professor of Exegetical Theology, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis

Dr. David Adams joined the faculty of Concordia Seminary in 2000. During the past 20 years, he has brought with him to the classroom wide-ranging interests from philosophy to archaeology. With respect to the latter, he wrote the study notes for the Psalms and Old Testament Wisdom Literature in the ESV Archaeology Study Bible (Crossway, 2018) and was centrally involved in the archaeological dig at Khirbet Qeiyafa from which an inscription was unearthed that provides historical evidence for the existence of King David and the united monarchy in 2007. He is best known for his work on the Old Testament and has been devoting a much of his time to thinking through a Lutheran theology of the Old Testament with a special focus the presence of God.  Adams is one of those people who loves to talk theology at the drop of a hat and does so in a way that his conversation partner always comes away from it enriched in ways that start one thinking in new ways.
