  • Question: Does the Biblical account recorded in the first chapter of 
  • Genesis 1:1; 2; 5; 8; 13; 19; 23; 31; 2:3; prove that the physical universe and the earth were created in 6 Days and only 6000 years ago? A superficial reading of Scripture may lead to presumptuous conclusions from verses like;

  • Genesis 1:2; The earth (הָיְתָה = became = [hayah]) (תֹהוּ = formless = [tohu]) and (וָבֹהוּ = void = [bohu]) and darkness was on the face of the deep. The Spirit of Eloheyem (מְרַחֶפֶת  = hovered = to intensely watching over, in a state of shock or shaken) over the face of the waters. 
  • Genesis 1:31; The Sixth Day ended when,  Eloheyem observed everything He (עָשָׂה = made = [asah] means; to mold, fashion, to organize) and it was (very = מְאֹד = [meod] = exceeding the earthly creation that existed before the six days of the Genesis 1:2; renewal began) and the word (good =  טָבַב = [towb] = a quality of goodness that corrects and heals the created nature that became destroyed by evil).
