Mind The Gap! Gap Theory According to Jesus

Genesis 1:1 tells us that “In the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth.”

Genesis 1:2 goes on to tell us that “the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep.”

Some people have suggested that there is a gap, containing eons of time, in between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2.

Is this scriptural?

First, we must remember that in the original Hebrew, there were no verse numbers separating those two statements. Both were connected together.

Now, let me ask you a simple question:

What corresponds to “the beginning” according to Scripture?

All would agree that the answer is Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

Jesus Christ, Yeshua of Nazareth, asked a simple question himself: “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female?” Here he is referring to the beginning as being immediately connected with the creation of Adam in the garden.

How could Genesis 1:1 refer to an age eons before the rest of the creation account, when Jesus himself connected the creation of the first man and woman directly to Genesis 1:1 “the beginning”?

Do we trust our Savior’s words? Or do we trust the philosophy of man?
