Diagram: Genesis 1 Creation Model

Based on the ancient texts, this drawing evokes the image of a mother’s womb. In the Genesis 1 creation model, the mothering spirit of God bears the “child.” Similar to the state of an unborn infant, a layer of fresh water surrounds creation. Via rainwater and springs the Holy Spirit (Hebrew: Rúakh HaKodesh, feminine gender) nourishes the physical world. More telling is that God’s creation seems to contain both darkness and light.
