Day One

Genesis 1:2-5 July 8, 2010 B100708

“The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.” It’s a short and well-known verse of Scripture, but don’t let brevity or familiarity eclipse the significance of Genesis 1:2. God is introducing us to some incredible things about to take place on the very first day of creation.

John MacArthur explains . . .


Now that you’ve heard John explain the meaning of Genesis 1:2-5, what parallels do you see between the creation of the universe and the new creation of a Christian? (See 2 Corinthians 4:6.) Also, what impact does evolutionary theory have on such parallels? Take it to the comment thread.
