Commentary on the Commentary II
Continuing to wade through my archeological study Bible, I ran across two, contradictory references on opposite pages. Their comment on Genesis 7:1-19 repeated the old canard that it was assuredly a local flood, yet on the facing page, their comment on Genesis 9:1-7 shows that God would never send a flood to destroy all life again. I can't believe people can still argue that it was a local flood. Just two chapters later you have irrefutable evidence that either it was a global flood or God brazenly lied. I still have trouble understanding how such flagrantly contradictory theses can still be proposed!
