E100: 001 | The Very Beginning

"Right from the start, the Bible introduces us to its main character, God. The rest of this unique and wonderful book is all about him. Today’s passage describes how God created his world and also gives special attention to a key part of the story—the creation of humankind, with both men and women being made in his image."

Read Genesis 1:1-2:25 | (ESV)

Then God said, "Let us make human beings in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." So God created human beings in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:26)
God refers to himself in both the singular and plural form. The first hint of plurality within the Godhead. The very first chapter in the bible points ahead to the Trinity?
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:1-5)
