In general, my presentation will be about the relationship between Genesis 1 and 2. These two chapters form the heart of the JEPD theory of the assembly of the Torah and have been used for more than a century, at least since Julius Wellhausen, to undermine the inspiration and authority of the Bible. We will show that if you let the words mean what they normally would, the relationship between Genesis 1 & 2 becomes completely plausible. Unlike conventional thinking, Genesis 2 is not a rehash of the creation story that ends up making the Bible contradict itself.

I will begin by asking the question, “who was Cain worried about when he says in Genesis 4:14 (NASB)  Behold, You have driven me this day from the face of the ground; and from Your face I will be hidden, and I will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.” In the end, by analyzing the text, we can provide a plausible answer to this question.
