Understanding Genesis, Part One: Creation Account

-a paper by Jack Crabtree

Updated version of an earlier paper.

This newer version of an earlier paper seeks to explicate the meaning and significance of the initial creation account in the first chapter of the book of Genesis. It contends that this account is one of the most important passages in the whole of Scripture. To understand the message and the significance of this account is to understand the perspective that underlies everything else that the Bible teaches. If one does not understand the message and the significance of this account, he risks misunderstanding everything else that is found in the Bible.

This updated version contains an additional appendix that explores the exact nature of God’s purpose for creating created reality.
