In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Read verses 1-2. What do these verses tell us about God? What does “the beginning” refer to? Why is the word “created” significant? 

Answer the following for each day of creation:

What was made?

What do verses 26-27 tell us about man’s: 1) design; 2) purpose? What does this tell us about our relationship to God? What does it mean to “rule over” the earth? How is this also God’s blessing ? (28) How did God provide for man? (29) What difference does it make to know that God created man in this way? 

What did God do on the seventh day? (2:1-3) Why?
