Beyond Genesis 1: Creation Passages in the Bible

Did you know the Bible talks a lot more about the Creation story (the most amazing miracle by God) beyond Genesis 1? Yup it's true. I can understand how the general public and non-followers would view Genesis 1 as thee definitive (in many ways it is, in others it’s not) and only explanation on the cosmological subject, but a more studious look into Scripture will reveal that God actually has a lot more to say about what went down when things began for us, for the Earth, and for time and space as we know it.

The below collection may surprise you…but in fact each passage makes statements regarding Creation just as valid, applicable, and more revealing in addition to Genesis 1. Have a look sometime! (feel free to leverage biblegateway.com)

  1. Author's note: You'd be hard pressed to find such exhaustive explanations and descriptions, let alone logical and scientific coherence, in any other religious holy book ever. The Bible truly is unique in its truths claims regarding cosmology.
