Just about everyone knows what goes down in the earlier chapters of Genesis. God makes the earth and humans, humans sin, humans flee from the garden and go on leading their sinfilled lives...
But as I read through the creation account, I am struck with a question I've never asked before. At the end of each creation day, it says "there was evening and there was morning" which marked a "day". But half of these "days" occurred before God put the sun and moon in the sky as markers for us to keep track of day and night. I just think it is very interesting that it is described as evening and morning before there was even a sun and moon...very interesting.
In Chapter 2, you learn a little more about the detail that went into creating Adam and Eve. I wonder why God made Adam and then waited a little while before creating Eve. He says no suitable helper could be found, but if he already knew there wasn't going to be a helper, why not just make her at the same time?
I cannot even imagine how scared they were after being approached by God after eating of the fruit. I imagine these two little mice being blasted away by a lion's breathy roar.
