Graham Koptie Genesis passport Summary God who is alone in the eternal darkness known as the void separates the light from the darkness. God then named the light day and the darkness night. God separated the earth, water and sky from each other. By creating a dome like structure that kept the water above from leaking into the world below God made the earth bountiful. God blessed the land with vegetation and animals in the land, air and sky that could multiply provide for each other. Humans created in gods image o Humans don’t have same physical traits-we don’t know what god looks like however it is known that we share some of his characteristics, mostly our moral compass and empathy. God gives the first man/ Adam dominion over the garden of Eden and tells him that he may eat everything except the fruit from the tree of knowledge. The man is lonely with animals for company, so god makes him Eve The woman Eve is tricked by the serpent and eats the fruit of knowledge. She then gets Adam to eat the fruit as well. Aware that they are now naked due to the knowledge of the fruit they hide from God. God finds them and punishes them by sending them out of Eden for eternity Key points God divides the light from the dark and creates the universe from nothing with his powers. Creates the earth and all life on it: vegetation, birds, land animals, sea creatures, humans, etc. God creates the first man Adam and gives him all that he could ask for but tells him not to eat from the tree of knowledge. Tricked by the serpent Adam and Eve eat the fruit and are banned from the garden of Eden. Inquiry questions Why is the serpent looked at as bad for giving humans knowledge? Specifically, would God not want the humans he created to be as intellectual as possible? By saying created in “our” image does it imply that maybe there was other beings with God from the beginning of time such as angels or other supreme beings?
