Old Testament Notes

Creation of the World

            Creation of the World. The biblical story of the creation of the world occupies the first two chapters of the Genesis . God created the world in 6 days. First, He separated light from darkness; then parted waters from the sky and the earth; on the forth day He put a sun and a moon in the sky; on the fifth day He created all the animals; and on the sixth day He created a man in his own image. On the seventh day God saw that all his work was completed and blessed that day and rested.
