· List the three Christian views of creation, as given in the lecture, and a brief
description of each. The Young Earth, Old Earth, Theistic Evolution. The Young
Earth was created between 6 days 24 hours a day, making earth 6,00-15,000
years old. Old Earth- believes that creation took long periods of time, Earth is
4.6 to 13.7 billion years old. Theistic Evolution- evolution took place, good used
tools to help expnad the universe, it is different because of his likings. · The concept that humanity is created in the image of God may refer to a number of
things. List four things: two covered in the textbook and two covered in the lecture.
Gods character and His reason behind creating humans. The soverign creator
and God's work/creations. · What are the similarities between the scenes in Revelation 21:1-4 and the garden of
Eden in Genesis 2? Follow suits with the Bible's tale. It talks about creation but
also restoration. · According to the lecture, what is meant when we say God is sovereign? He created
all, he came before and created all of us. He is in control, he has the power. · List at least five characteristics of God emphasized in Psalm 145. Faithful, Mighty,
Trustworthy, Gracious, Compassionate. · List three reasons for seeing humanity as the pinnacle of God’s creation. The book
states states "the place at the end of the narrative, by the amount of narrative
space that the creation of humanity takes within the narrative, and by the
interruption in the pattern of wording established when discussing the first five
days of creation in the Genesis 1." · How does the textbook describe the garden of Eden? Good jand ordered, a place of
worship, a temple. · How would you describe the nature of work God gave to Adam in the garden of
Eden? It is in a way worship before god, therefore not always consequencal. · Summarize Proverbs 9:10. God is ulitmate reality, but also is all knowing and
understands everything. · Summarize God’s statements in Genesis 2:16-18. He blesses humanity, wants them
to understand good vs bad, friendhsips have benefits like to take care of one
another, and free choice, which means rejoice in good decisions and pain for bad
ones. · What does the textbook say about the involvement of the Trinity in creation? We can
see that it is plural, which earlier people did not catch but we can understand it
now. · List the four basic “acts” of the overarching biblical story. Creation, Redemption,
Restoration, Fall. References Diffey, D. (2015). Wisdom in the beginning. In Grand Canyon University (Ed.), The
