    Certainly, current understanding of the Creation story has gone through an intensive level of examination, because of people’s quest for answers from the Bible’s verse, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,” by using many ways of criticism (KJV). A start point for critics and theologians, to develop and analyze, what took place during this complicated process. Furthermore, in Genesis 1:31, “God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good,” and completed on “the sixth day,” also brings the whole creation story full circle (KJV). Which this very, early literary description, became the norm, first for the Hebrew people, and now for Christians, because of how these traditions were passed down. Being, that…

    Genesis 2 and 3 might seem that it focuses on the creation of the world as we know. However, if we look beyond this storyline, we can see that Genesis 2 and 3 is actually about how God tests Mankind. The testing is not to see Mankind fail, but rather, how Mankind can improve. Throughout the entirety of Genesis 2 and 3, we see that The Garden of Eden was made by God that one may test Mankind. We can see this through the order of creation, how Mankind gets tested, and from how the punishments are…

    In Genesis 3, the tree of knowledge has no point in the garden of Eden except to test Mankind. This could only have happened if they were to be tempted by the Snake which . If this is indeed the case, are God and the Snake are working together or even the same being? God must be coordinating with the Snake in order to test Mankind’s obedience to Him. I came to this conclusion when after carefully reading the text, I could find no purpose for the tree other than to be a test for Mankind. Placing…

    addressed at the opening of Genesis. The principle of divine creation has been debated for centuries and modern advances in science spurred many theories attempting to prove a different age and creation of the earth. Yet Genesis 1:1 makes it unmistakably clear that God alone created the heavens and the earth. God made earth from nothing and therefore it has a definite beginning. As Genesis 1-2 continue, God’s involvement with creation is apparent as he not only instantaneously speaks all…

    her favorites within the Order’s junior members because she was quiet, subservient, polite, reverent... Mirea would never be Head Priestess, or do anything magnificent with her life, but occasionally mediocrity was necessary for survival. “Nothing much today, I’m afraid.” Focused Niena replied somewhat sarcastically, somewhat amused yet a small scowl erupting on her face. Tender Mirea turned around hastily, eyes bright with babyish excitement. “You could commune with them, Sister! Maybe they…

    the multiple Mayan gods created the Earth, everything it is composed of, and how they later create beings capable of worship. In Genesis, one God is responsible for the creation of everything, the most important being mankind.

The most paramount similarities are explaining the origin of humanity, illustrating the consequences for not following the rules set by the gods or of God, and…

    The story of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11 of the Hebrew Bible is a brief but complex moment within the larger story of human development throughout the book of Genesis. At first reading the story appears entirely pessimistic in nature, but through close reading of the text, the nature of the story begins to change. In this essay, I argue that humankind’s creation of the Tower of Babel was motivated more so through an unconscious desire to be closer to God, who had become physically absent…

    Bowen’s Family Systems theory (BFST) attempts to explain human behavior as it relates to family dynamics and its complex interconnections. Reading Genesis chapters one through four, I identified four of eight BFST concepts that can be applied to “The First Family”: (a) triangles concept, (b) nuclear family concept, (c) emotional cutoff, and (d) sibling position. According to BFST, the triangle concept refers to three individuals that are in some way connected to each other, be it biological…

    Prompt #1 Hospitality is a very common and reoccurring topic in the book of Genesis, but it is represented in unusual ways. In the story of “Sodom and Gomorrah”, and old man says to his guests “let me bring them to you (his daughters), and you may do to them as you please” (Genesis 19:8). Lot, the father, is simply trying to be hospitable, but today we read this and think how could someone do this? Personally, I am willing to consider this as a very extreme version of hospitality, but I still…
