Genesis 1 & 2

  1. What truths stand out regarding:
    (a) the character of the whole creation,
    (b) the character of man and his relation to God?
  2. ‘And God said’ is found ten times.
    Cf. Ps. 33:6, 9; Heb. 11:3. What does this suggest concerning the mode of creation?
    What further light is provided by John 1:1-3; Col. 1:15-17?
  3. Why did God make men ‘male and female’?
    What pattern for marriage is divinely ordained here?
    Cf. Matt. 19:3-6.

Note. Interest should be concentrated on theological truth that cannot be leant from text books of natural science.
