Overview and Objectives

Lesson Overview

Why does God create the heavens and the earth? What impact does that have on the rest of scripture and even the rest of history? What is the image of God? Diving in to one of the most mysterious and rich passages in all of Scripture, Dr. Young carefully and thoughtfully leads us through God’s creative work in Genesis. This lesson also includes scholarly contribution from Denver Seminary professors Elodie Emig and Dr. Richard Hess, examining the creation event from both New Testament and Old Testament perspectives. Finally, Denver Alumna, De’Leathia Hightower shares a powerful story of how creation can lead us to worship our Creator.
