Diagram: Genesis 1 Creation Model. When a drawing is made from the ancient texts, the Hebrew creation story at Genesis 1 evokes the image of a womb: the Mother aspect (the spirit of of God) bears the child. Analogous to an unborn infant, a layer of fresh water surrounds creation. Depicted as rain and spring water, The Holy Spirit (Rúakh HaKodesh; feminine gender) enters the world to sustain and nourish God’s children.
