The opening of the Bible celebrates God’s work of creation. The Lord has no rivals but acts by his sovereign, powerful word. Humanity, male and female, is the climax of God’s creation. Together they are uniquely made in his image and likeness. They receive a royal commission to reflect his righteousness and to fill the earth with the knowledge and worship of the Lord. The Lord places them in the world to care for it. Adam and Eve live in unbroken fellowship with God and to discover that goodness is found in obedience to God’s Word.
