I feel like a complete moron, but I have only just realized that the Bible takes the timeless entity of God, from the very beginning, and puts it into the timeliness that man needs to understand.
בְּרֵאשִׁית (trans. b’rashit)- In the beginning. Without time, there is no beginning, middle or end – there simple “is”. God’s own name, “I am, that I am” takes Him out of time, and yet, we are provided evidence after evidence of linear time in the Bible.
I’m really stuck on time – both the presence of and the lack of, and am fascinated with the dichotomy. I think part of it may be because I cannot comprehend why God would create us within the four dimensions of space. And then my brain takes off in other directions, pointing out that we actually exist in multi-dimensional space that gets into string theory, and definitely exceeds the bounds of this blog. But, it’s cool to contemplate. 🙂
