Genesis 1:1 - In The Beginning, Part Three

Shabbat Shalom, Happy Passover.

The word “bara”, translated as “created”, more specifically means to to create, shape, form and to expand upon. Using the complete concept of the word, is it better to say that G-d created the basic building blocks, the atoms and from these basic building blocks, G-d formed the universe and the earth?

In fact, science teaches us the same theory and tries to explain it by calling it “the big bang” theory. This theory concludes that all things were condensed in a singularity, a very small point in space. They say that this singularity exploded, or expanded during which, after billions of years, it formed “bara” all the matter that makes up the universe. They say that the only problem is determining where the material came from and identifying the force that caused it to happen.

Of course, that force and the source happens to be G-d.
