Genesis

Details, Please (Part 1)

The Bible’s first book never explains God; it simply assumes His existence: “In the beginning God…” (1:1).  Chapters 1 and 2 describe how God created the universe and everything in it simply by speaking: “God said…and it was so” (1:6-7, 9, 11, 14-15).  Humans, however, received special handling, as “God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life” (2:7), and woman was crafted from a rib of man.
