Old Testament Lesson 2:

“In the Beginning God Created the Heaven and the Earth”
Genesis 1–2; Moses 2–3; Abraham 4–5

 

Even if you have read about the Creation before, there is always more to learn from the scriptures. Pray for guidance from the Holy Ghost to help you find new understanding.

Genesis 1: God creates this earth and its heaven and all forms of life in six days—The creative acts of each day are described—God creates man, both male and female, in His own image—Man is given dominion over all things and is commanded to multiply and fill the earth.

Genesis 2: The Creation is completed—God rests on the seventh day—The prior spirit creation is explained—Adam and Eve are placed in the Garden of Eden—They are forbidden to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil—Adam names every living creature—Adam and Eve are married by the Lord.

Moses 2: God creates the heavens and the earth—All forms of life are created—God makes man and gives him dominion over all else.

Moses 3: God created all things spiritually before they were naturally upon the earth—He created man, the first flesh, upon the earth—Woman is a help meet for man.

Abraham 4: The Gods plan the creation of the earth and all life thereon—Their plans for the six days of creation are set forth.

Abraham 5: The Gods finish Their planning of the creation of all things—They bring to pass the Creation according to Their plans—Adam names every living creature.
