The Apocalypse of God

Genesis, Book 1
(1:1 through 2:3)

He is There and He is Not Silent (Genesis 1:1-2)

The first two verses of scripture reveal that there is One God, that he is a Personal God, and that he has the power of creation and destruction. But is that all there is to know about him?

The Structure of the Apocalypse (Genesis 1:3-13)

God begins to share who he is with the universe. Revelation produces structure. Structure makes room for life. And life leads to further revelation.

The System of the Apocalypse (Genesis 1:14-25)

God fills the structures he made with life and, in the process, reveals what exactly is going on.

The Priesthood of the Apocalypse (Genesis 1:26-31)

Worshipers need worship leaders. And the worship leaders need to know God intimately if they are to lead others closer to the source of life. So God creates a special set of living creatures who can do just that.

The End of the Apocalypse (Genesis 2:1-3)

The last day of creation also turns out to be final day of planet Earth — and reveals the meaning behind all of history.
