Compare or contrast The Book of Genesis creation story with a creation story from another culture or tradition (For example, Greek, Roman, Native American, Arab, or Sumerian) Analyze the character of God in Genesis. Consider his main characteristics, or his relationships with those he chooses to speak to, or the decisions he makes over the course of the text.
In chapter one, God said about man/men, “and let them have dominion over the fish of the seas and over the birds of the heavens, and the cattle, and over the earth, and over every crawling thing that crawls upon the earth.” Some scholars have viewed this passage as a rationale for humankind’s attempts to control all aspects of nature. In other words, we’re the bosses and we must rein in nature and use it for our purposes. What do you think?
Study the female characters in Genesis and choose the one you believe has the most agency (or control over her own life and destiny.) Is she the equal of any man in the text? What makes her so unique among female characters in the text? Is she simply a stereotype or a full-bodied, well-rounded character?
According to scholar and historian John Gray, the thematic concept of good vs. evil derives not from Judaism or Christianity but first appeared in the ancient Persian religion of Zoroastrianism. Where does evil manifest itself in Genesis. Which acts and events are viewed through the lens of what is right and what is wrong? Think of the serpent in the Garden of Eden, for example. Is he evil, or is he simply providing Eve an alternative to life in the garden? Feel free also to peruse the New Testament where, one could argue, the concept of good and evil is more pronounced.
