''The first day'': The Day and Night

May 23, 2018 Speaker: Adam Olean

In Genesis 1:3, God begins bringing the newly formed heavens and earth to their completion, culminating in the seventh day. God's first act is to dispel the absolute darkness of Genesis 1:2 by the creation of light. This establishes the cycles of light and darkness, day and night, and evening and morning, which lay the foundation for the subsequent days. Furthermore, day 1 also includes several components that repeat throughout the narrative and so deserve our special attention. These include a command, a report, an evaluation, an action (of separating), naming, and the conclusion of the first day. The narrative again and again demonstrates the authority, power, and goodness of the one, true Creator God and the goodness of his original creation.
