Today C4C is studying Genesis 1 — the six “days” of Creation. These “days” are, as John Lennox (mathematician, scientist, Oxford University professor, and Christian apologist) says, the ‘Seven Days That Divide the World.’ For more information on the powerful Cosmological Argument for the existence of God, please visit this previous post.


16 וַיַּ֣עַשׂ אֱלֹהִ֔ים אֶת־שְׁנֵ֥י הַמְּאֹרֹ֖ת הַגְּדֹלִ֑ים אֶת־הַמָּא֤וֹר הַגָּדֹל֙ לְמֶמְשֶׁ֣לֶת הַיּ֔וֹם וְאֶת־הַמָּא֤וֹר הַקָּטֹן֙ לְמֶמְשֶׁ֣לֶת הַלַּ֔יְלָה וְאֵ֖ת הַכּוֹכָבִֽים׃1

16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.2

C4C Translation

And God made two great lights — the greater light for dominion of the day and the lesser light for dominion of the night — and the stars.
