As the use of "day" (yom) in Genesis 2:4 conflicts with that in 1:1-2:3 if
a 24 hour interpretation is forced upon both, the professor was not taking
the text out of context, whereas the student was. Another passage in the
Pentateuch requiring a non-24 hour rendition is the description of the year
of Jubilee-it follows a day of 49 years.
