Old Testament Story List

Creation of Man

"Genesis" means "origin." The book of Genesis tells us the origin of the universe and especially about the origin of Earth, the home of mankind. The creation account begins with a dark and lifeless state into which God speaks. The crowning glory of His creation occurs on the sixth day and is the creation of Man (both male and female), into  

whom He breathes His spirit. In all of His creation, only Mankind is created in the image of God. We were created to glorify God and to reflect His Goodness, His Mercy, His Beauty, and His Love. All of Mankind was tested in Adam. No one since Adam has been created with such perfection as God gave to him. He was the perfect test candidate for Mankind. Adam faltered and failed to abide by the one restriction that God placed on him in the Garden of Eden. In all the beauty and splendor of the Garden, only one thing was denied him, and Adam decided he would rather throw it all away just to have this one little thing. Adam's test, ultimately, was a test of his willingness to subject himself to God and to obey Him. Since the time of Adam, all of Mankind has inherited Adam's inability to humble himself before his creator. All, that is, but one - Jesus.
