[Podcast Episode 35] Where did our 7 day week come from? What do the 10 Commandments have to do with Genesis 1-2? We take a dive into the end of Creation Week and meet some animals that help us picture this along the way. Legends remembering Noah’s Flood wrap up this jam packed show!

The Creation Day of Rest
Genesis 1:31- 2:3
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Seven Day Week
The Old Farmer’s Almanac is hardly a Bible group, but look what it says:
No more logic supports seven days than, say eight or five, yet the seven-day week has resisted any and all attempt at change…
The seven-day week started with the first civilizations of the Middle East….
Somebody was always trying to come up with something better! In 1936 the League of Nations solicited proposals for world calendar reform and considered almost 200 different schemes, many of which rearranged the week.
Animals who Enjoy Their Rest

Shock! National Geographic mentions these otters are “designed”! And the video is just plain fun:

We got the stories from this article at Creation Ministries International:
You can study lots more in these books:

It’s just 24 pages long, but beautiful and detailed.
This next one is long and covers all kinds of evidence including ancient flood legends:
For the Son of Man’s coming will be just as it was in the days of Noach. Back then, before the Flood, people went on eating and drinking, taking wives and becoming wives, right up till the day Noach entered the ark; and they didn’t know what was happening until the Flood came and swept them all away. It will be just like that when the Son of Man comes. Matthew 24:37-39 Complete Jewish Bible
