E100-3: Genesis 6:5-7:24: Sin and Righteousness

I think I’ve avoided really looking at this passage, and I notice that my teaching has focused too much on the signs of two source texts being edited together, and noticed too little how the story works, because like the genocide texts it offends my sense of right. The story looks different when one hears it as an exploration of the theme of sin and righteousness, as I’ll try to here.

The reading is here Genesis 6:5-7:24.
