Creation Days 3 and 4

“Let the land produce vegetation… plants and trees…  – the Third Day.”  Genesis 1:10-13

“Let there be lights in the… sky to seperate the day from the night.  – the Fourth Day”  Genesis 1:14-19

Certainly, plants and trees require light to live, so how can it be that light was created the ‘day’ after vegetation was created?  But wait:

“And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.  God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.  God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.”  And there was evening, and there was morning – the first day.”  Genesis 1:3-5

Clearly we see here that The sun and stars must already have been formed and the earth must be rotating to have night and day.  We know that stars and sun were formed earlier because:

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”  Genesis 1:1

When reading Genesis 1 we must be very careful to note the prospective that the view is taken from.
