” In the beginning God Created the Heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1. In Genesis 1 the chapter tells of how God created the universe. On day one God said “Let there be light” and there was light and God saw that it was good. In chapter 1 Whatever God said came true. He spoke the world into existence. When God Created light He separated it from the darkness. Verse 5 says God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning–the first day. 6 And God said, “Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water.” In verse 6 God separated the waters from each other. this was on day two. If you’re wondering how God could separate the waters without making them in verse 2 it say that the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. On day three God Created land and every kind of plant. On day four God Created the planets and everything in space so that we could tell time. On day five God Created every living creature in the waters and every winged bird. On day six God Created Every other living thing. And then God created one  man. 

Genesis 2 tells about the seventh day and how man and woman and created. On day seven God rested and saw that everything He made was good. God saw that no one was there to work on his creation and so he formed dust and breathed into man’s nostrils. God gave him dominion over everything and told him to eat of any tree except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil for it would kill him. Next, man named every animal and saw that they all had another. So God put Adam into a great sleep and pulled out one of his ribs and made another. And Adam called her woman because she was taken from man. The two were both naked and were not ashamed. So in this chapter God makes man and woman and all the animals are named. 

Genesis 3 in these verses they tell the fall of man. Verses 1-7 1Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, `You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”2The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,3but God did say, `You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’“4“You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman.5“For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”6When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.7Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. In these verses is the story of the fall of man. Man and woman disobeyed God and they knew right from wrong. And God was walking through the forest looking for them even though He already knew where they were hiding. God punished the serpent by making him cursed that he should crawl on his belly and eat dust. The woman was punished by having to be in pain when having children. And Adam was punished so that he would have to work for his food. They were kicked out of Eden and put cherubim with flaming swords flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life. It was then that Adam named the woman Eve.
