Creation: Genesis 1:1 -31

 

 

We see the Creator in the crowning point of all creation;  God has made and is giving life to his creation, Adam.  Surrounded by the sun, moon stars and heavenly bodies, yet the human man is lifeless and naked, symbolically expressing our dependency on God with an outreached arm toward the hand of our Creator.

The Story of Creation.

In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth and the earth was without form or shape, with darkness over the abyss and a mighty wind sweeping over the waters
Then God said: Let there be light, and there was light.God saw that the light was good. God then separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” Evening came, and morning followed—the first day.
Then God said: Let there be a dome in the middle of the waters, to separate one body of water from the other. God made the dome, and it separated the water below the dome from the water above the dome. And so it happened. God called the dome “sky.” Evening came, and morning followed—the second day.
Then God said: Let the water under the sky be gathered into a single basin, so that the dry land may appear. And so it happened: the water under the sky was gathered into its basin, and the dry land appeared. God called the dry land “earth,” and the basin of water he called “sea.” God saw that it was good.
Then God said: Let the earth bring forth vegetation: every kind of plant that bears seed and every kind of fruit tree on earth that bears fruit with its seed in it. And so it happened, the earth brought forth vegetation, every kind of plant that bears seed and every kind of fruit tree that bears fruit with its seed in it.
God saw that it was good. Evening came, and morning followed—the third day.
