What was done on the first day of creation?

The Consensus:

Light, day and night were created.

My Opinion:

Note: This page will be updated with more details.

  • God created (and completed) the heaven and the earth. (Genesis 1:1, KJV)
  • The earth, when completed, was formless and void. (Genesis 1:2, KJV)
  • Light (which already existed) was called to the surface of the deep which had been in darkness. (Genesis 1:3, KJV)
  • God (“saw the light” i.e.) recognized; that (“it” i.e.) the heaven [and/or the earth] was (already) good: and God (“divided” i.e.) caused there to be a separation between those who saw the light and those who did not see the light. (Genesis 1:4, KJV)
  • God named those who saw the light (“Day” i.e.) living and those who did not see the light (“Night” i.e.) dead. And (the evening” i.e.) the questioning of what was (in the beginning) and (the morning” i.e.) the conceptualization of a new beginning, was the first day. (Genesis 1:5, KJV)

Read Scripture:

The first day of creation. (Genesis 1:1-5, KJV)

1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
