This post is the third in a series about the Waters Above the Firmament. This post describes how this cosmic geography of these “waters” (mayim) and “the deep” (tehom) is shown again, specifically as it relates to the crossing of the Jordan.
This post is the third in a series about the Waters Above the Firmament, first mentioned on the second day of creation, which SEEM to exit the entire narrative of the Bible (but which in reality do not). This post is about the next time the word “the deep” (tehom) is used in scripture. The place is in the Exodus out of Egypt.
The purpose of this post is to show how rich the Bible’s metaphorical or symbolic ( or literal?) use of the words “the deep” (tehom) and “the heavens” (shamayim) actually are. By understanding this conceptual framework, you can understand some very deep and complex things that the Bible communicates.
