Q: WHAT YEAR WAS THE WORLD CREATED ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE?
A: IT DEPENDS WHAT CALENDAR YOU ARE USING!
On the Gregorian calendar (the one you might have on your wall) the year was 4046 BC.
On the Hebrew calendar, sometimes called the biblical calendar, the year was 1 AM (After Man).
Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
In this verse God the Father tells us why He created man. There are two words which explain the result He wants mankind to achieve; “likeness” and” image.” The word likeness is Strong’s #1823 and refers to man’s outline or shape, which is a copy of God’s shape. The word image is Strong’s #6754, and the following explanation is from The Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament, “God’s image obviously does not consist in man’s body which was formed from earthly matter, but in His spiritual, intellectual and moral likeness to God from whom his animating breath came.”
Matthew 5:48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
John 15:1-2 – 1 I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
