Bible commentary

Discussion for Genesis 1

  • Susan
    The Godhead consists of three. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Gospel of John 1:1-3,14 mentions the Father and clarifies that the Word is Jesus and Genesis 1:2 mentions the Spirit. All three present and taking part in Creation. I think of their parts like a contractor, architect and builder. The Father had the basic plan, the Son did the design and the Spirit, the work.

    To Jim on Gen. 1 ( cont.) - also when God referred to the plural he may have been referring to the fact He already knew of His own plan to create an earthly body to dwell in named - JESUS. God is omniscient (all knowing; knowing all things from BEFORE the "beginning" in Gen.) He knew he was going to create you and me - way back then (Jer. 1:5). Jesus wasn't before the virgin birth.
  • IRENE123
    to Jim on GEN. 1:26 - Some claim God was conversing with another diety.This could not be true: God made all things ALONE. The Hebrew word for God is Elohim ( plural) in ALL of Gen. 1.But the Jews believed in only ONE God - :Hear O Israel...:- DEUT. 6:4. 'Us' and 'our' are simply figures of speech that God, not man, used.

    I believe that the US or OUR image, GOD is speaking to the heavenly hoists or beings.
  • Joninice ison
    God had already created the earth .Someone once told me God was talking to the earth. Man was made from the dust of the ground. "Let us make man in our image" from the dirt of the ground and God breathed into man the breath of life. Man became a living soul. when we die the soul goes back to God and the body returns to the earth.
  • Word
    Jim God ordained Jeremiah and knew him before He put Jeremiah in his Mothers womb and as you read that Esau God hated and loved Jacob you realize that God knew them from before. In Ephesians 1 God speaking to the election explaining to them that they were chosen and predestin from before the foundation of the earth, this earth age. Gen 1:2 the word "was" translates "became". We are very old.
