The 6th Day

One of my students who has an interest in the early church thought he had run across an indication that there were times when the early church fathers preached/lectured on the days of creation during Holy Week. Now whether or not they did so, I don’t know for sure. But as I reflected on the idea, it suggested some intriguing connections. It provides a way of pulling together the original creation and the new creation as it focuses on the central role of God’s human creatures in both instances.

    I like your 6th Day connections. There is one more that fits John really well. In Genesis 1 on the first day God said, “Let there be light.” Jesus, who is the Light, rises from the dead on the first day of a new creation week and John begins his Gospel with the Light coming into the world.
