Discussion for Genesis 1

  • Methuselah
    Encho,the author writes in the third person not only because royalty and deities are often recorded as speaking that way but God is triune (Father,Son,Spirit)...I encourage you to look up the hebrew word Elohim
  • Judy

  • Nisa
    The words(us) an (our) that's refers to Jesus and Holy spirit the trinity Father Son and HolyGhost one but three alpha and omega the beginning and the end. God always has been, please forgive if I'm wrong

    When God was doing all his let US make this and let US make that...all along that he knew and
    saying to St Michael and the others guys what we really doing ? Cause we all know
    there going to be misery on earth.
  • Valerie Wilson
    Yes there was others... Let US! Of course there were others.
  • Encho
    Genesis 1:26, And GOD said "le us make man in our image, after our likeness.
    My problem is with the word "us" and "our". My question is, does these two words imply that God was not creating the world alone? That means there were others with him? If yes who were those with him?
