Abstract

Open theism focuses on our relationship with God and points out the ways that traditional theism’s emphasis on divine omniscience and immutability is in conflict with a close, mutual relationship. Open theists argue that many biblical texts portray God as open to a future that is not fully known by him and that is shaped in cooperation with God’s covenant partners. Exodus 32.7-14 is frequently cited as supporting the openness position, and in this article I will examine the main points of the openness argument and then exegete this passage in the context of the book of Exodus. A careful study will show that Exodus 32 demonstrates not a lack of foreknowledge on God’s part, but a process of experiential learning as Yahweh and Moses together make decisions about the future of God’s chosen people.
