B’reishit – בְּרֵאשִׁית (Genesis 1:1−6:8)
This Week’s Torah Portion: B’reishit – בְּרֵאשִׁית (Genesis 1:1−6:8)
“In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the earth” – God creates the world, God existed before the world was created and God will continue to exist, even if God forbid we destroy the world.
That is the most important innovation the Hebrew Bible brings about God! God is not dependent on laws of nature, God is beyond the world, God has no sexuality, nor family, nor any other human fixtures, God is the total other than us.
