Relevant Notes

Unless otherwise stated, all scriptures are quoted from the following:

o The True Bible Study Word Translation (TBS); Genesis chapters 1 – 5 are translated from the Greek old covenant writing (Septuagint) by Maura K. Hill.

In the TBS Word Translation and study:

o Words in parentheses and italicized within a scripture verse are words inserted to help our English understanding of those words which are translated from Greek words.

o Additional explanatory insertions within a scripture verse are enclosed in square brackets and italicized.

o Non-English words are printed with English letters.

o I use an initial capital letter for all occurrences of the words Lord and Master when referring to either God or the Lord Jesus Christ due to my respect for them, therefore the reader will need to carefully consider the context of each particular usage to understand to whom that usage refers.

o Where the word spirit refers to God, I use an initial capital or upper-case S - Spirit. But when the word spirit refers to the gift of holy spirit, etc, I use a small or lower-case s - spirit.

o Underlined text is used for the English word but when translated from the Greek word alla to show that it implies a strong contrast to that-which has just previously been stated, and/or to strengthen a command.

o Underlined text is used for the singular form of the word you to distinguish it from the plural form of the word you which is not underlined.

o Underlined text is also used for emphasis.

o In order to communicate the fullness of the emphasis when the Greek definite article is repeated both with the noun and its adjective - for example: I Corinthians 15:4 the Greek is te hemera te trite, which literally means the day the third - I translate it as "the day, the third (day)."

o Verbs in the imperfect tense are translated with the words used-to and then the meaning of the verb.

o For example: used-to teach indicates that the one teaching spent time teaching, his action of teaching continued during a past time that is now finished for some reason, not that it was a quick one-time occurrence. The one teaching taught others taking time to teach, and he may have repeated his teaching at different times and in different ways. This tense is also used to historically describe past events relating what happened.

o Verbs in the perfect tense are translated from Greek with a superscript number 2 immediately following the verb - for example: it was written².

o This tense indicates an action done during a past time and which has a present continuing result, meaning it is still the same at the time the verb was spoken/written. Therefore, this example could be translated as: it was written and continues written.

o The noun love¹ or the verb to love¹ comes from the Greek word agape which is God’s kind of love.

When the Biblical writers wrote, there were no punctuation marks, no chapter or verse divisions indicated, etc, as we see them today in many of our English Bible translations and versions. Therefore we must read the whole context of each particular passage of Scripture for thought-content to more clearly understand the truth of what has been written.

Also, the original language was not English, and therefore when I may write that the writer said or wrote such and such, please understand that the writer actually spoke and wrote in the original language the equivalent to that-which I state in the English language to the best of my knowledge.

Introduction to Adam and Eve, Genesis 1-5

The idea (theory) that the earth was beautiful and then it became devastated between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 is not supported in the scriptures. The record is:

o Genesis 1:1 the introduction,

o Genesis 1:2 – 2:3 the details;

...and therefore between Genesis 1:1 and 2:3 we have God’s creation of the heaven and the earth.

God shows it in a step-by-step process from start to finish. It is like building a house:

o it starts with a piece of land which is not fully prepared,

o then the foundation is laid on it,

o then the frame and roof of the house is erected,

o then items are put into the house,

o and then the people come to live in it.

God’s purpose came to pass. He did what He wanted to do as recorded in the Scriptures. He created it in a beautiful form and He caused it to be inhabited with mankind, animals, etc, and of course God Himself. No evolution of mankind is recorded in Genesis (human-beings did not evolve from other types or species of beings).

Creation for Adam and Eve

Genesis 1:1 – 2:3


God created the heaven and the earth in the beginning as recorded in Genesis 1:1 – 2:3. It took God six days to accomplish creation and on the seventh day He rested from all His work.

God opens this account by summarizing what He did for mankind (human-beings).

Genesis 1:1:

¹:¹In (the) beginning God made the heaven and the earth,

The focus of this phrase is the beginning relative to mankind. At the outset (commencement, source, origin, start)…

o God (the First, Superior or Ultimate One, the One Who has power, executes judgment, and emanates what He is, His power and light [in Greek the noun is Theos; in the Hebrew language this word is a plural noun adding emphasis to His superiority in all words and actions; Elohim, the Creator in relation to His creations; He should be acknowledged by mankind to be in the highest position of all to/for mankind])

o made (did, performed, produced, brought about the action of His purpose [in Greek and Hebrew this verb is in the singular form referring to the one and only true God; the Hebrew verb is bara which refers to the initiation of God’s action regarding this creation, plus this verb is in the ‘qal’ stem or pattern thereby emphasizing the completion of this action in the past which is only used of God’s activity – God created])

o the heaven (this literally refers to anywhere above the earth, the sky above [in Hebrew this word is always in the plural form and figuratively it emphasizes the expansive greatness of God’s spirit realm, God’s location today from mankind’s view])

o and the earth (land, ground).

Genesis 1:1 is a summary of events pertaining to the creation of the beautiful heaven and the beautiful earth for mankind.

[Reference: Isaiah 45:18; Hebrews 1:10.]

The first portion of verse 2 continues by describing the area where the earth would be made on the 3rd day.

Verse 2(a):

.2(a)but the earth used-to-be unseen and not-fully-prepared and darkness over the abyss.

During that past time, historically, the
