    The creation story depicts human beings as the zenith of God’s creative activity. Their uniqueness is portrayed in two separate and complementary accounts. Genesis chapter 1 is a terse overview of all creation while Genesis chapter 2 shows that God lavished very personal and particular attention on the creation of both Adam and Eve.

Neither the previous inanimate or animate creation was so described. In those creative activities, God had simply said, “‘Let there be’...And it was so” (as in Genesis 1:6–7). Being made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26–27), human beings are free, rational, capable of self-appreciation and self-expression, capable of moral and spiritual understanding, and created for fellowship with each other and with God. That the first human pair, made in God’s image, would fall and lead the race into sin (3:1ff.) was hardly a surprise for the Creator, who nonetheless purposed to create and redeem them through Christ. To…

    Days In Genesis

    • 1527 Words
    • 7 Pages

    Question 1: How long are the days in Genesis 1? Why? Mom: I think that the days in Genesis 1 are normal, literal, 24-hour days. The entire rest of the Bible would not really make sense if they were anything other than 24-hour days. For example, the Bible mentions that on the seventh day, God rested from his creation. If, as some suppose, the days represent periods of thousands or millions of years, this would mean that God very well may still be resting. This would support a Deist worldview that…
