Genesis / Creation / Light
I don't know about you, but I think we should understand Genesis 1:3 as saying "God said 'Let Him be light, and He was light.'" I think this is quite obviously how the Gospel of John understood Genesis 1:3. If you look at the Hebrew this is entirely plausible. If we translate it this way it leads to an understanding of the interconnectedness between the early verses of Genesis and the Gospel of John, the Crucifixion and the Last Judgment. I haven't done all the research, but right now I would hypothesize that the Last Judgment can be found in the first verses of Genesis. Creation and the Last Judgment may be the same thing. The separation of Light and Darkness, and the separation of Life and Death.
