The Barren Earth and the Life-Giving Spirit (Genesis 1:2 )

May 2, 2018 Speaker: Adam Olean

Scripture: Genesis 1:2

After briefly addressing a few things from last week's discussion on legalism and Christian liberty under the New Covenant, we resume our study of the creation account (Gen 1:1–2:4). Having already established the setting ("In the beginning") and the introduction of God and his creative work ("God created the heavens and the earth"; Gen 1:1 ESV), we now focus our attention on the incomplete state of the earth (Gen 1:2). This will set the stage for God's remaining creative works, culminating in his "very good" creation (Gen 1:31) and his completion and rest from his work (Gen 2:1–3).
In Christ,
