Genesis 1 (Part 1)

Genesis
GenesisSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg provides a detailed analysis of Genesis 1, the summary of the creation story, and Chapter 2, which focuses on the creation of humans in the Bible. He emphasizes that the language and the meaning of some words used in Genesis 1 may vary. While there is ambiguity in the interpretation of some phrases, the focus of the lecture is a small part of the vast theology and cosmology discussed in Genesis. Gregg explains that the belief in one God has existed in ancient societies long before evolution. The purpose of humanity is to glorify God, depend on Him and submit to His will. The division between light and darkness established by God emphasizes the distinction between good and evil.
