Biblical Sources of Theology of Creation

65

The Bible contains passages that focus on creation and numerous verses that touch on it in the context of other topics. Given the diversity of these texts, it is not possible to speak about a theology of creation in the Bible. It is more appropriate to speak of a biblical creation faith than a systematic biblical theology as such. In a sense, biblical creation faith is a broad canvas against which can be seen God’s dealings with humanity. Biblical creation faith, which is presented in stories and statements about faith in creation, has significantly influenced the creation doctrine of the Christian tradition and continues to be addressed by the theologians today. Therefore, it is deserving of a careful treatment.
