04 creation biblical theme

  1. 1. Lesson 4
  2. 2. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” Genesis 1:1 Key Text 2
  3. 3. We find two apparently different creation stories in Genesis 1:1 to 2:3 and Genesis 2:4-25. The second story explains that everything God created (heaven, earth, vegetables, animals and even Sabbath) was created for man. We were created to live forever joyful in fellowship with God and our neighbors. If we carefully study those stories we may find out that the first one is a general story of the creation of the world; the second one explains some details about the creation of man.
  4. 4. Genesis 2:4-6 summarizes the first 5 days of Creation. It emphasizes the creation of plants and the atmospheric conditions that made life on Earth possible. Genesis 2:7-25 add details about the sixth day of Creation that were not told in the first story. God creates Adam (Gn. 2:7) He creates and furnishes a home for Adam, the garden of Eden (Gn. 2:8-15) He teaches Adam the basic moral laws that will rule his life (Gn. 2:16-17) He creates animals to live with man (Gn. 2:18-20) He creates the woman. Adam and Eve become “one flesh” (Gn. 2:21-25) Genesis 2:4-25 details the story in Genesis 1, “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Gn. 1:27)
  5. 5. We find direct and oblique references to the story of Creation in the entire Bible. The biblical authors considered that story to be true and literal. They were based on it when building greater arguments. Let’s study some references of creation throughout the entire Bible. We’ll order them by each day of Creation.
  6. 6. “The world and all its fullness, You have founded them” (Psalm 89:11) “I am the Lord, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself” (Is. 44:24) “Thus says God the Lord, Who created the heavens and stretched them out” (Is. 42:5) “For thus says the Lord, Who created the heavens, Who is God, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain, Who formed it to be inhabited: “I am the Lord, and there is no other.”” (Is. 45:18) “He has made the earth by His power; He has established the world by His wisdom, and stretched out the heaven by His understanding” (Jer. 51:15) “Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You” (Jer. 32:17)
  7. 7. “who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it” (Rev. 10:6) “worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water” (Rev. “I fear the Lord, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the dry land” (Jon. 1:9) “God, who made the world and everything in it” (Acts 17:24) “For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time” (Mr. 13:19)“All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made” (John 1:3) “You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created” (Rev. 4:11)
  8. 8. “You who laid the foundations of the earth, so that it should not be moved forever, You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains” (Psalm 104:5-6) GENESIS 1:1-2 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?” (Job 38:4) “the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth” (Zec. 12:1) “by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water” (2P. 3:5)
  9. 9. “Who cover Yourself with light as with a garment” (Psalm 104:2) “Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place?” (Job 38:19) “He who makes the morning darkness, Who treads the high places of the earth—the Lord God of hosts is His name” (Am. 4:13) “God who commanded light to shine out of darkness” (2Co. 4:6) Genesis 1:3-5
  10. 10. “Who stretch out the heavens like a curtain” (Psalm 104:2) “He who… creates the wind… The Lord God of hosts is His name” (Am. 4:13) Genesis 1:6-8
  11. 11. “At Your rebuke they *the waters+ fled; at the voice of Your thunder they hastened away. They went up over the mountains; they went down into the valleys, to the place which You founded for them. You have set a boundary that they may not pass over, that they may not return to cover the earth” (Psalm 104:7-9) “He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and vegetation for the service of man” (Psalm 104:14) “For He has founded it *the dry land+ upon the seas, and established it upon the waters” (Psalm 24:2) “You have set all the borders of the earth” (Psalm 74:17) “When I fixed My limit for it *the sea], and set bars and doors; When I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther, and here your proud waves must stop!’” (Job 38:10-11) “He who forms mountains… The Lord God of hosts is His name” (Am. 4:13) Genesis 1:9-13
  12. 12. “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained” (Psalm 8:3) “He appointed the moon for seasons; the sun knows its going down” (Psalm 104:19) “By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth” (Psalm 33:6) “The day is Yours, the night also is Yours; You have prepared the light and the sun… You have made summer and winter” (Psalm 74:16-17) “Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place?” (Job 38:12) “I—My hands—stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded” (Is. 45:12) THE FOURTH DAY Genesis 1:14-19
  13. 13. “There is that Leviathan which You have made to play there *in the sea+” (Psalm 104:26) Genesis 1:20-23
  14. 14. “You have made him *man+ to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet” (Psalm 8:6) “I have made the earth, and created man on it” (Is. 45:12) “I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are on the ground, by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and have given it to whom it seemed proper to Me” (Jer. 27:5) “the Lord… forms the spirit of man within him” (Zec. 12:1) “He has made from one blood every nation of men” (Acts 17:26) “And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?” (Mt. 19:4-5) “The first man Adam became a living being” (1Co. 15:45) “For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.”” (1Co. 6:16) “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh” (Eph. 5:31) “men, who have been made in the similitude of God” (James 3:9) Genesis 1:24-31 Genesis 2:7-25

  16. 16. Think through the implications of our origins and why getting them right is so important to our understanding of who we are, why we are here, and what we can hope for in a world that, in and of itself, offers no hope at all. The wonders of creation help us in trusting the amazing love and power of God. Understanding our origins is so important that God had it placed as the first subject in the Bible, and the message of the Bible is based on the historicity of the Creation account.
