Six 24-Hour Days, A Reformed View



By J. Ligon Duncan, III  |  Friday 28 October 2011

The �six 24-hour day view� of the creation days of Genesis 1 (variously called the �normal day view,� the �literal view,� the �calendar day view,� etc.) that is, the view that we are to understand God�s creation days as recorded in Genesis 1 to be calendar days of the sort we now regularly experience is the �default view� of Christianity, historically and confessionally. That is, the historic Christian tradition has always in the main viewed these days as calendar days, because it has viewed the Genesis account as historical. This talk will explain the history and hermeneutics of this issue from a Reformed perspective.
