A Mesopotamian Creation Myth
1-According to this account, how is the world created?

“Book of Genesis: The Hebrews Explain Creation”
1-Consider the stages of creation. What does their order reveal about the Hebrew faith?
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
2-God creates man on the sixth day, but a few verses later the text states that “there was not a man to till the ground,” then a mist watered the earth and God formed man from the dust of the ground. Why does God seem to create man twice, and what could this indicate about the way the text was created?
3-Explain the following passage: “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.” What does this indicate about how the Hebrews understood the relationship between their God and humanity?
4-Given that all of God’s creations through the sixth day are described as “good,” what does that suggest about the source of evil in the world? Does evil come from nature, from God, from human beings?

3-Of all the Greek heroes, Odysseus is described as the most resourceful. In what ways does this passage support that assessment?
