This week’s Bible study is going to take us through a closer look at the fifth day of Creation. Let’s read the passage of scripture first:

Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.” God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good. God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

Again we see the Lord focusing on a specific part of the creation and filling it with life. Before we get into the text, there are a couple of terms that we’ve already looked at that we see used here. The first is the word expanse, which we saw in our study of Day 2. If you’ll remember from our study, the expanse includes everything from the land of our planet to the space where the planets, stars, and suns exist. The birds fly above the earth in the expanse of the heavens. Later in the passage, we again see the phrase “after their kind”. Remember that this is an indication that each type of animal was originally made with all of the necessary genetic information for the variety of animals that we see today. As the animals continued to reproduce, the variety increased. Different events split up these animals into smaller groups and helped them continue to diversify, but they are still the same kind of animal. Continue Reading Genesis 1:20-23…

With us beginning a new schedule for our blog and adding a Bible study, we believe that the best place to start at is the book of Genesis. This book is one of the most controversial of all those in the Bible. The book of Genesis provides the foundation of so many different doctrines that an understanding of this book is essential to anyone wanting to know the origin of Christian beliefs. In the book of Genesis, we find the Creation, the Fall, the Flood, the Tower of Babel, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph. The history in Genesis spans about 2,200 years of history. It includes a number of things that will be followed throughout the rest of scripture. Continue Reading Genesis 1:1-5…
