This chapter ends with a footnote on the Exodus time line…
Exodus 7:25 Gill
And seven days were fulfilled,…. Or there were full seven days, a whole week:
after that the Lord had smitten the river, and turned it into blood; here the miracle is ascribed to him; Moses and Aaron, and the rod they used, were only instruments, nothing short of almighty power could do such a miracle; it seems this lasted seven days at least. It began, as Bishop Usher (o) computes it, on the eighteen day of the sixth month, or Adar, part of February and part of March, and ended the twenty fifth of the same. It is not said that Pharaoh requested to have it removed, though Philo (p) says he did; his stubborn heart not being humbled enough as yet to ask such a favour, and therefore perhaps it was taken off without asking for it, to make way for another.
(o) Annal. Vet. Test. p. 20. (p) Ut supra. (De Vita. Mosis, l. 1. p. 617.)
It’s this added detail that makes the events “real” history.
BTW I finally got to see Del Tackett’s Is Genesis History film last night.
This is where the Seven days originated….the film was fascinating and beautiful, and the content eye opening.
I learned much of the content covered over the last couple years using the resources provided by Mike Riddle of CTI at: http://www.creationtraining.org/post/mikes-podcast/ or here in audio format: http://www.creationtraining.org/post/audio-posts/
I’m not a film critic and I don’t write reviews but here is my reaction:
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
100% solid affirmation of Genesis History.
Literal six days was well presented.
Everyone in film was PhD, and beautifully on location filming.
I feel sorry for those on the other side. Their facts are evolving away.
Also those like the Pope Francis and Tim Keller, BioLogos and others that teach theistic evolution….or pastors and teachers who waffle…..either supporting the poetic interpretation or that it really doesn’t matter…I hear that way too often. If you have those tendencies you should try to see it. It’s good enough at making the case to stand on solid ground.
Btw speaking of ground, they covered a lot in 2 hours.
This was the last scheduled showing and only a remnant showed up.
I will try to get a DVD copy when it is available.
