Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Genesis 1:9-10 (NLT)
9 Then God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear.” And that is what happened. 10 God called the dry ground “land” and the waters “seas.” And God saw that it was good.



Light for this scene comes from the 2 volcanoes.


Originally I was just going to draw a quiet scene – maybe the seashore & some rocks emerging from the water. But then, more recently, I decided to draw a more elemental, forceful emergence of the land.
As I researched volcanoes, particularly the colour schemes used to depict them, I came across Joseph Wright’s oil painting “Vesuvius from Portici”. The dominance of the warm colours in this bold painting are amazing. My cartoon is sort of a homage to his colour & design.

Bible Doctrine Notes
1:3-2:25 GOD, Creator (1.13A)

This passage is the primary account of God’s activity as Creator. The passage does not explain how God created; He simply spoke things into being, from nothing into something. God designed the universe and declared the end result good in His sight.

1:3-2:1 CREATION, Progressive (2.13G)
The act of God’s creation went from the general to the specific, and from simpler to higher complexity. God worked for 6 days and rested on the seventh. Many people contend that the Hebrew term “day” em>yom should be translated as an unspecified unit of time, not a 24 hour period, especially since the sun and moon (which mark off time for us here on earth) were not created until the 4th day. Whether the creation took 6 literal (24 hour) days or a much longer period of time, the important point is that this miraculous creation of the universe was an act of love by a sovereign God. God as an orderly, purposeful Creator is th central emphasis.
