The Hebrew word for day, yom, is used two-thousand-three-hundred-and-one times in the Old Testament. And, like our English word day, yom has different meanings. But we always know which meaning is intended for day and yom based on their context. Still, some won’t accept the obvious in Genesis chapter 1.
Many Christians claim Genesis isn’t clear about the length of the days of creation. Now: is this because the context isn’t clear? Not at all! It’s because many Christians are trying to fit man’s secular ideas into God’s Word. Instead of starting with the Bible as the authority, they’re starting with man’s ideas—and that’s dangerous.
Ken Ham is the CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis-US, the highly acclaimed Creation Museum, and the world-renowned Ark Encounter. Ken Ham is one of the most in-demand Christian speakers in North America.
