Creation Moment 7/3/2017 - Prologue to Scripture

 "Scholars have increasingly recognized that the first three chapters of Genesis are set apart from the
rest of the Bible, constituting a kind of prologue or introduction. These opening chapters of Scripture are now widely regarded as providing the paradigm for the rest of the Bible. John Rankin summarizes the growing conviction among biblical scholars: “Whether one is evangelical or liberal, it is clear that Genesis 1–3 is the interpretive foundation of all Scripture.”

         The most prominent theme displayed in Genesis 1 to 3 is that of creation, which involves various issues of origins. The opening chapters of Genesis are the foundational statement of Scripture regarding creation. The basic elements in the Genesis account of origins are encapsulated in the opening verse of the Bible, Genesis 1:1:
         ● “In the beginning (the “when” of origins)
        ● “God” (the “who of origins)
        ● “created” (the “how” of origins)
        ● “the heavens and the earth” (the “what” of origins)


The Sabbath commandment explicitly equates the six days of work followed by the seventh-day Sabbath with the six days of God’s creation work followed by the Sabbath. By equating humanity’s six-day work week with God’s six-day work week at creation, and further equating the Sabbath to be kept by humankind each week with the first Sabbath after creation week blessed and sanctified by God, the divine Lawgiver unequivocally interprets the first week as a literal week, consisting of seven consecutive, contiguous 24-hour days.

 Every chapter of Genesis 1 to 11 is referred to somewhere in the New Testament, and Jesus Himself refers to Genesis 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7." PerspectiveDigest
