    4. Creation of AdambyMichelangelo

    5. Yahweh Elohim (Gen. 2:4) • Significance of names • Yahweh: Israel’s Redeemer • Elohim: World’s Creator

    6. Creation Stories in Ancient Near East • Truth about world expressed in stories • Similarity and difference between Genesis 1 and other stories • Negatively: challenge pagan stories • Positively: teaching about creation

    7. Literary Structure of Genesis One Stage One: Gen. 1:1-2 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” “The earth was dark, formless, empty.”

    9. The creation story is so rich in meaning that ‘it cannot be easily over-interpreted theologically’. -G. Von Rad The Separation ofLight from the DarknessbyMichelangelo

    10. Moses’ concerns were exclusively religious. His intent was to proclaim knowledge of the true God as he manifested himself in his creative works, to proclaim a right understanding of humankind, the world, and history that knowledge of the true God entails—and to proclaim the truth concerning these matters in the face of the false religious notions dominant throughout the world of his day. -John Stek

    11. Genesis One’s Teaching About… • God • Humankind • World

    12. Genesis One’s Teaching: God • Eternal • One • Distinct from creation • Sovereign King over creation • Powerful • Personal

    13. Genesis One’s Teaching: Humankind • Creature • Relationship with God • Image • Similar to God • Different from God • Male and female • Rule over creation

    14. Just as powerful earthly kings, to indicate their claim to dominion, erect an image of themselves in the provinces of their empire where they do not personally appear, so man is placed upon earth in God's image as God's sovereign emblem. He is really only God's representative, summoned to maintain and enforce God's claim to dominion over the earth. -G. Von Rad

    15. Human Rule • Stewards • Loving rule not tyrannical exploitation • Responsibility and accountability • Development and care (Gen. 2:15)

    16. A Biblical Understanding of Humanity The Lord God Fellow humans Self • The World - work - politics- care of the environment, and so on

    17. Genesis One’s Teaching: World • Good (variety, harmony) • Ordered by God’s word • Historical • Kingdom
