Does Ezekiel 28 Support the Gap Theory?
According to the popular ‘gap theory’, the Genesis creation account can accommodate a history of millions of years in between the first two verses. But this attempt to squeeze millions of years into the Bible suffers from fatal flaws. The gap theory is inconsistent with its proponents’ own interpretation of Ezekiel 28. There are further problems with the gap theory as well, including its ad hoc suppositions, its placement of death before the Fall, its downplaying of Noah’s Flood, its violation of the Hebrew grammar in Genesis 1, and its opposition to Jesus’ view of Genesis. The Bible is clear—there is no gap!
