Creation of Adam and Eve: 4004 BC

By admin

In the Bible, the seven days of creation are described in the Book of Genesis, specifically in Genesis 1:1-31. Here is a brief summary of each day of creation:

Day 1: Light “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness” (Genesis 1:3-4).

Day 2: Sky “And God said, ‘Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.’ So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it” (Genesis 1:6-7).

Day 3: Land, Seas, and Vegetation “And God said, ‘Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.’ … Then God said, ‘Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.’ And it was so” (Genesis 1:9, 11).

Day 4: Sun, Moon, and Stars “And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.’ And it was so” (Genesis 1:14-15).

Day 5: Birds and Sea Creatures “And God said, ‘Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.’ … So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind” (Genesis 1:20, 21).

Day 6: Land Animals and Humans “And God said, ‘Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.’ … Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness'” (Genesis 1:24, 26).

Day 7: Rest “By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day, he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done” (Genesis 2:2-3).
