The Apocalypse of God

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

The God Who is There (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?

He is There and He is Not Silent (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.
