Formed from Dust, Animated by Breath

David Janke Jr.

This section of Genesis does not commence a second act of creation. Chapter two is like a rewind, and then a deeper dive; a summary of chapter one (i.e., the main points). Chapter two rewinds to day six and fills in more of the detail. Rather than another set of creative acts, we get a more in-depth look at man and woman, God’s most prized creation.
