Creation Account From Genesis 1-2 • Main Points • Genesis 1 covers the six days of creation. God pronounced it good at the completion of the sixth day. • Genesis 2, from verse 4 onward, is a looking into the details of the events of Day 6, the origin of the human race. • These accounts are not contradictory. Genesis (Hebrew Beresheeth-means in the beginning, titled by the first words) has a specific structure throughout its record, especially when it comes to the flood, the genealogies and the forming of nations, giving geography and the generations of families from Adam through the flood (the taldot- generations) are specific in detail. Creation Account From Genesis 1-2 • Main Points • Genesis 1 focuses on God calling the universe into existence ex nihilo • The Genesis 2 account is more primitive in some ways. In the original Hebrew, God is known as YHWH(pronounced 'Yahweh') and his powers are more limited than in the first account, because he does not create living things out of nothing. • There is no mention of creation of the firmament or the sun, moon and stars (lights), which were presumably pre-existing. The land was pre-existing and plants would grow without divine creation, once God sent rain. Personal Beliefs About the Origins of the Universe • Main Points • The universe is believed to have originated about 15 billion years ago as a dense, hot globule of gas expanding rapidly outward. At that time, the universe contained nothing but hydrogen and a small amount of helium. There were no stars and no planets. The first stars probably began to form out of hydrogen in the universe was about hundred million years old. this is how our Sun originated about 4.49 billion years ago. • Many stars came into being before the sun was formed, many other formed after the sun appeared. This process continuous and through telescopes we can now see stars forming out of compressed pockets of hydrogen in outer space. Personal Beliefs About the Origins of the Universe • Main Points • Big Bang Theory, which holds that the universe originated from a single violent explosion of a very small amount of matter of extremely high density and temperature. • *Our response is to say that the Bible is right and science is wrong, but this often elevates a particular biblical interpretation to the authority of the Bible itself. Scripture is always given and received within a cultural context. Personal Beliefs About the Origins of the Universe • Main Points • As we attempt to understand the Bible in today's context, Christians sometime disagree on the meaning of particular passage. Just ask the Bible is always interpreted by fallible humans, so too science of the human interpretation of nature. Does its theories are subject to critique and revision. Personal Beliefs About the Origins of the Universe • Main Points • Astronomers also theorize that 99% of the matter in the universe is invisible, or dark matter, composed of some kind of matter that is difficult to detect. How My Beliefs About Origins Impact My Worldview • According to the Big Bang theory earliest universe was hot and dense, and it start to cool after the expansion. giant nebular gas clouds began to form when the gravity start to play and as the matter acuumulated in the cloud gravity increased and it began to contract, in order to keep the angular momentum of the rotating cloud it fasten its angular velocity when it reached a critical value the outer layer of cloud thrown off and condensed to form planets and the central region forms a star due to the heat generation due to the intense gravitational force at the center. How My Beliefs About Origins Impact My Worldview • we can see that nothing in the universe not formed in a matter of seconds, its an evolved system through millions of years, age of the universe is calculated to be around 13.8 Billion years, and 4.6 billion years for solar system. How My Beliefs About Origins Impact My Worldview • life formed on earth is an emergent property, because it formed through the chemical reaction of elements like nitrogen phosphorus and compounds like methane and water combined with the electrical discharges in the form of lightening, it had reproduced through the Miller's experiment and confirmed the formation of amino acids. How My Beliefs About Origins Impact My Worldview • later formed the single cell micro organisms and bacteria under gone the most important tool called evolution and leads to multi cell organisms, and the life we see today through around 3.5 billion years. so its clear that the world we see today is an outcome of evolution of billions of years and not created by somebody else in a short time. How My Beliefs About Origins Impact My Worldview • Humans are created to have dominion over the Earth. This dominion is a stewardship. While it should be understood that creation should never worship what has been created instead of the Creator, it is humanity's responsibility to care for creation. Reflect on the role of humanity in Genesis 1:26-28 and 2:15 in light of Romans 1:24-27. References (Ingebritsen, 2014) ...
