    Jeff; Maybe it was because Patrick was the one who brought the Word of God and the Glad Tidings of Christ to heathen Ireland, that is meant by "getting rid of the serpents." I don't know who Bridget was, but maybe the story around her was symbolic [as well]? What Prophecy are you referring to?
  • A disciple
    Dr. Gordon; I don't understand; what are you talking about? How do you think, 1) that your opinion doesn't matter? and, 2) that the holy Narrative of the account of Creation, is somehow only to be interpreted as from "ancient near east" thinking? Please explain.
  • Jeff
    The prophecy is not true cause how can st Patrick drive all the snakes out of Ireland. How can st Bridget have a small cloth and spread it on a massive land iT MAKES no sense. AT ALL
  • Dr Dennis Gordon
    What do I think of Genesis 1? Frankly, my personal opinion is not what is important. What is important is what GOD wants us to understand from it, which, in turn, is based on what the Israelities were supposed to understand from it because it was written in the context of the ancient Near East.
