Genesis 1:1 - In The Beginning, Part Two

“Elohim”, translated as G-d here in Genesis 1:1, is actually the Hebrew word for G-ds. In the beginning, G-ds created the heavens and the earth. Here we have a plural noun which has a singular verb. Does this contradict the Sh'ma found in Deuteronomy 6:4, “The Lord, our G-d is one Lord.“?

No! It’s the first place that proclaims the multi-dimensionality of G-d. Elohim is infinitely multi-dimensional. He has no limits. However, he will not arbitrarily break his laws of physics except for times where it suits his will or desire.

Therefore, we can confidently state that G-d inhabits eternity but exists in three spacial dimensions and one time dimension within our time-space. This theme is consistent throughout the Tanak, or Old Testament into the B’rit Hadashah, or New Testament.

  1. Multi-dimensional? Are you delusional? He's not mutli-dimensional, He's omni-dimensional. I think you limited God's existance. :) Had to do it.

  2. I stand corrected. We can't limit a limitless G-d. And yes....I am delusional and much more.
