Basically, from the first chapter, we learn the process of creation, and the basis of it. From darkness and emptiness, God created light and filled the earth with life—both creatures and vegetation.
However, the bigger focus that I aim to emphasize is on the creation of man. God created man in his image, which can be interpreted both literally and figuratively. Humans can directly reflect God’s physical image, but the deeper interpretation can bring us to conclude that God has given Humans his qualities of emotions and decision making. And as God uses the foundations of the earth, dust/ground, in order to create humans, he plants us to become the foundations of the earth. Watching over the animal and livestock, God makes humans the foundation of all other beings. Also, as he blesses humans with his breathe, in order to give us life, he intends for Humans to act on behalf of him—To take his breath and lead the rest.
Continuing on, we are also informed that God places the tree on knowledge and life in the center of the garden. why is that? God, though he had not opened the humans eyes to good and evil, still gave humans the gift of knowledge through the lense of innocence. In that way, he made humans special and distinct from other creatures. Just as the trees were special and in the center of the garden. God centered Humans in the garden and creatures—he made everything to the convenience of man.
Unfortunately, taking advantage of the privilages that God had provided, Eve desires more. Though the serpent alludes Eve to make the decision to eat the forbidden fruit, we see that her DESIRE led her to make such a sin. In a certain light, Desire plays a very effective role in sin.
God’s love is unconditional. Despite the sins that adam and eve commit, he still watches over their children—Cain and Abel. And we can see hoe much God loves his children because even though we(Cain) do wrong in his eyes, he does not want us, does not allow us, to be justified and judges by others. When Cain murders Abel, regardless of his sin, God promises the entitlement of security and guidance, because he is God’s son.
