The magnifi-
cent description
of the creation
of the world in
6 evolutionary
days, the birth
of life in the sea
and the creation
of man (Homo
sapiens) from
the dust of the
ground invokes
admiration even
today in the 21
st
century AD.
Creation of the World and of Light - Plants Appears
[1]

1
In the beginning
2
God created the heaven
and the earth.
2
And the earth was without form,
and void; and darkness was on the face of the
deep. And the
3
Spirit of God moved on the face
of the waters.
3
And
4
God said,
5
Let there be
light: and there was light.
4
And God saw the
light, that it was good: and God divided the light
from the darkness.
5
And God called the light
6
Day, and the darkness he called Night. And
the evening and the morning were the first day.
6
And God said,
7
Let there be a firmament in
the middle of the waters, and let it divide the
waters from the waters.
7
And God made the
firmament,
8
and divided the waters which were
under the firmament from the waters which were
9
above the firmament: and it was so
Vg+
8
And God
called the firmament Heaven. And the evening
and the morning were the second day.
9
And
God said, Let the waters under the heaven
10
be
gathered together to one place, and let the dry
land appear: and it was so.
10
And God called
the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of
the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it
was good.
11
And God said,
12
Let the earth bring
forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit
tree yielding
12
fruit after his kind, whose seed
is in itself, on the earth: and it was so.
12
And
the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding
seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit,
whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God
saw that it was good.
13
And the evening and
the morning were the third day.
14
And God
said,
14
Let there be lights in the firmament of
the heaven to divide the day from the night; and
let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for
days, and years:
15
And let them be for lights
in the firmament of the heaven to give light on
the earth: and it was so.
16
And
15
God made two
great lights;
16
the greater light to rule the day,
and the lesser light to rule the night:
17
he made
the stars also.
Vg-
17
And God set them in the
firmament of the heaven to give light on the earth,
1.
1
In the beginning God made the
heaven and the earth.
2
But the earth was
unsightly and unfurnished
, and darkness
was over the deep(abyss), and the Spirit
of God moved over the water.
3
And God
said, Let there be light, and there was light.
4
And God saw the light that it was good,
and God divided between the light
and
the
darkness.
5
And God called the light Day,
and the darkness he called Night, and there
was evening and there was morning, the
first day.
(Vg*1)
6
And God said, Let there be a
firmament in the midst of the water, and let it
be a division between water and water, (and
it was so).
7
And God made the firmament,
and God divided between the water which
was under the firmament and the water
which was above the firmament.
8
And God
called the firmament Heaven, and God saw
that it was good, and there was evening and
there was morning, the second day.
9
And
God said, Let the water which is under the
heaven be collected into one place, and let
the dry land appear, and it was so. (And
the water which was under the heaven was
collected into its places, and the dry land
appeared).
10
And God called the dry land
Earth, and the gatherings of the waters he
called Seas, and God saw that it was good.
11
And God said, Let the earth bring forth
the herb of grass bearing seed(according
to its kind -
genos-
and according to its
likeness), and the fruit-tree bearing fruit
whose seed is in it, according to its kind on
the earth, and it was so.
12
And the earth
brought forth the herb of grass bearing seed
according to its kind (
genos
) (and according
to its likeness), and the fruit tree bearing
fruit whose seed is in it, according to its
kind (on the earth), and God saw that it was
good.
13
And there was evening and there
was morning, the 3
rd
day.
14
And God said,
Let there be lights in the firmament of the
heaven (to give light upon the earth), to
divide between day and night, and let them
be for signs and for seasons and for days
and for years.
15
And let them be for light in
the firmament of the heaven,
so as to shine
upon the earth, and it was so.
16
And God
made
the
two great lights, the greater light
for regulating the day and the lesser light for
regulating the night, the stars also.
17
And
God placed them in the firmament of the
heaven, so as
to shine
Vg+
upon the earth,

The Book of Genesis is the first of the five initial books of the Holy Bible known as the Torah.
(
The remaining four books of the Torah or Pentateuch are: Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.
)
Genesis in Greek means the origin, the beginning, the creation, and it includes the meaning derived from the Hebrew phrase
Bereshith “
In [the] beginning
,” as it was customary to use the first phrase of each book as a title.
Genesis genuinely describes the origin of the world, of the human race, of sin, and especially the divine plan for our redemp-
tion. As it is shown by the book itself, Genesis consists thematically of two main parts: The first part involves the creation of
the World, of the animal and plant kingdom, and of man. It next refers to the fall of man and the corrupted pre-Flood world, and
describes the event of the Great Flood and Noah’s salvation. Then it cites the ethnological expansion of the human race, which
was followed by the confusion of tongues at the tower of Babel. The 2
nd
part includes the wanderings of Abraham’s monothe-
istic family until its final settlement in the land of Canaan. Then it narrates the history of the Patriarchs, until their descent to
Egypt, which was preceded by Joseph. As Jesus Christ Himself has declared (John 7:23) the book of Genesis was compiled
by Moses, with the definite direction of the Holy Spirit by making use of the 12 existing narrations “
toleroth
” (Gen 26:5), his
exquisite education (Acts 7:22) and the oral tradition of his people (John 7:22).
Genes i s
The verb ‘
Bara
’ is used three times, which means to create something out of nothing (ex
nihilo) -
in the creation of the heavens and earth, the life at sea and of man
- while the remain-
ing instances the verb ‘
Asah
’ is used that essentially means to construct something from
pre-existing material: How was such information acquired? Tatian (120-190 AD), who had
studied the mythologies and assumptions of his time about Creation, confessed: “
I have hap-
pened to read some barbarian writings
(i.e. non-
Greek, referring to the Old Testament)
which were very ancient
,
o be compared with the views of the
Greeks and very divine to be compared with their fallacies. And I was
led to put faith in them because of the austerity of their language, the
honesty of the authors, the manifest capacity to predict future events,
the high quality of moral standards and the declaration that the govern-
ment of the universe centered in a single Supreme Being.
” Although,
disbelief is a characteristic of many
“, as Plato pointed out, serious
thinkers and many esteemed scientists believe in a Creator-(Elohim)
