They are portrayed as being indescribably beautiful and powerful spirit-beings of the highest order (Ezekiel 28:12-13,17). Major Themes 1. Serpent. ” The book of Revelation informs us that the serpent is Satan (12:9; 20:2; see also 2 Corinthians 11:3). Since Satan, as the serpent, tempted our first parents, we infer that Satan’s fall from heaven took place before Adam and Eve appeared in the garden of Eden. Yet it must have also taken place sometime later than Genesis 1:31, where we are told that the entire creation was good.
Later, Moses’s instructions on the Sabbath were based on the creation week (see Exodus 20:8-11). Major Themes 1. The Trinity and creation. Many Old Testament references to the creation attribute it simply to God (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 96:5; Isaiah 37:16; 44:24; 45:12; Jeremiah 10:11-12). Other verses relate the creation specifically to the Father (Psalm 102:25), the Son (John 1:3; Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:2), or the Holy Spirit (Job 26:13; 33:4; Isaiah 40:12-13). First Corinthians 8:6 reveals that the Father is the Creator in a broad, general sense, and the Son is the actual agent or mediating Cause of creation.
I want to let you know right up front that the book of Genesis is absolutely foundational to a proper understanding of the rest of the Bible. After all, Genesis not only tells us about the origins of the universe and humankind but also informs us where human sin, suffering, and death came from. God’s work of redemption, as recorded throughout the rest of Scripture, would make little sense if we did not first understand these foundational truths in the book of Genesis. So we might say that Genesis sets the stage for all that follows in the rest of Scripture.
