The Book of Genesis, the first book of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament, is an account of the creation of the world, the early history of humanity, Israel's ancestors and the origins of the Jewish people.

Its Hebrew name is the same as its first word, Bereshit ("In the beginning"). It is divisible into two parts, the primeval history (chapters 1–11) and the ancestral history. Sefer Yetzirah (Hebrew: ספר יצירה Sēpher Yəṣîrâh, Book of Formation, or Book of Creation) is the title of the earliest extant book on Jewish mysticism, although some early commentators treated it as a treatise on mathematical and linguistic theory as opposed to Kabbalah.

Yetzirah is more literally translated as "Formation"; the word Briah is used for "Creation". The majority of ancient rabbis believed that the creation of darkness preceded the creation of light, 9 on the basis of the mention of darkness in Genesis before the creation of light in Genesis Each day of creation consisted of an evening (darkness) preceding the morning (daylight), on each of the six days of creation.

It is, however, the anthropological and individual side of the broad concept of the renewal of creation that is developed more widely in the New Testament.

It is the broader idea, which goes back to passages in the latter part of Isaiah, developments in apocalyptic Jewish thought, and Qumran, which probably gave rise to Paul's specific application.

Analysis. Genesis is widely taken as the authority for the Judeo-Christian doctrine of creation out of nothing (creation ex nihilo), but most biblical scholars agree that on strictly linguistic and exegetical grounds this is not the preferred option and is not found directly in Genesis nor in the entire Hebrew Priestly authors of Genesis 1, writing around – BCE, had been.

Joseph Blenkinsopp provides a new commentary on Genesisthe so-called Primeval History' in which the account of creation is given. Blenkinsopp works with the conviction that, from a biblical point of view, creation cannot be restricted to a single event, nor to two versions of an event (as depicted in Genesis ) but, rather, must take in the whole period of creation/5(2).

The thesis of Aviezer’s book, In the Beginning Biblical Creation and Science, Jewish thought is not a single continuous tradition, but rather a varied mix of works, which reflect the specific ideological and historical positions of those who wrote them.

Modern Israel. Gershom Scholem (Hebrew: גֵרְשׁׂם שָׁלוֹם) (December 5, – Febru ), was a German-born Israeli philosopher and historian. He is widely regarded as the founder of the modern, academic study of was the first professor of Jewish Mysticism at Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

His close friends included Walter Benjamin and Leo Strauss, and selected letters. Our People, originally published inwas the first Jewish history book for the English speaking reader.

Read today, it still provides a comprehensive outline of Jewish history, and also a view of the telling of history as it evolved over the last century.

—Biblical Data: The Hebrew and Biblical name for man, and also for the progenitor of the human race. In the account of the Creation given in Gen. man was brought into being at the close of the sixth creative day, "made in the image of God," and invested with dominion over the rest of the animate world.

Even Philo, the very allegorical Jewish philosopher of first century Alexandria, Egypt, thought that the days of creation as recorded in Genesis were referring to six literal days.

Philo If there were someone that we should expect to back up the old-earth theory, it would be Philo. This selection follows her exposition of the Babylonian creation myths, where the gods use the mutilation of the earth as a weapon to punish humanity.
