Sermon Series: Origins and Destinies
“God’s Garden: Paradise Found!”
On the sixth day, “God created man in his own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Gen 1:27). This fascinating passage, which is arguably the highlight of Genesis 1, is unpacked in the dirt and details of Genesis 2:4-25. In this text we see a picture-perfect garden: a picture of peace. It is very good. As the scene unfolds, we gain additional insight into the origin and purpose of humanity. And as descendants from that ancient order…we learn something about ourselves as well.
