To properly capture the idea of the biblical epic, we must realize that the Hebrew account of creation emerged out of the Near Eastern pool of gods and goddesses, culture and mysticism. Using his own direct translation from the Aramaic-Peshitta text of Genesis 1:1-31 and 2:1-3, Dr. Errico discusses the Semitic meaning, names and theories of the origin of God. Where appropriate, he borrows insights from the world of both quantum physics and biblical scholarship. The Genesis Story introdues to humankind its responsibility to the earth and its environment. The Hebrew cosmological depiction of a God-created good world is the ultimate purpose and destiny for the human family.
