Painting by Adele Bower
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Words to ponder:
God is the founder and creator of all life. The implications of this are great. This means that everything that exists must be under God’s control. The creation must be in subjection to the Creator. If God was before all things and made all things, how foolish it would be to have any other gods before Him!__________(Notes from “The Bible Knowledge Commentary”, by John F. Walvoord and Roy B. Zuck.)
“In the beginning”, speaks not of eternity, but of the creation of the world as described in the first chapter of Genesis. “God”, is literally Elohim having the basic meaning of “strong one, mighty leader, supreme Deity.”_____Notes from “The Ryrie Study Bible”, by Charles Caldwell Ryrie.
