The Issue of Divine Eternity
Is divine timelessness a case of the intrusion of Greek thought into Jewish and Christian ideas drawn from Scripture, or is the concept of God's timeless eternity warranted by scriptural texts? It is argued that the lack of a ‘reflective context’ in which the concept of time is introduced and used in Scripture means that nevertheless divine timelessness may be warranted of other features of theism, such as the idea of divine perfection, or divine immutability, or divine Creatorhood, warrant it. What matters is not where ideas originate but whether or not they are materially adequate in explicating scriptural texts.
