Genesis: First Things

“Meet Your Maker”
Genesis 1:1-25

One great figure dominates this whole account: The Creator himself. He is the subject of more than two-thirds of the sentences. This is both deliberate and important. Genesis was written in a world of many religions: In the religious supermarket of the Ancient Near East there were religions with animal gods, gods of the heavenly bodies, fertility gods, gods of war, and more. In our own multi-faith world, with the major religions jostling alongside each other, the confusion if arguably greater. It is all very well to say that we believe in God, but what exactly do we mean by that term? First and foremost, Genesis 1 gives us a vital primer about the One who made our world.
