"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." The lecturer quoted, barely glancing at the thick black Bible. "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."

His students were still alert and awake – they had barely passed Genesis 1 after all. "Obviously, 'rested' here does not mean God was literally tired, for God does not tire. It merely meant he was finished, done, with his work of creating Heaven and Earth, and could now take a moment to consider it – the Hebrew word shâbath..."

Unfortunately, the lecturer did not have time to finish. The earthquake swept across the campus, uprooting trees and collapsing some of the smaller buildings outright.

The cracks in the ground grew ever larger, cutting the Holmes Memorial Building in half, before the shocked eyes of the students. And from the cracks streamed light, bright without being blinding, and from the light streamed winged forms, and from the winged forms streamed music and song. Everything shook and fell, and the lecturer and his students were all crushed under the debris, even as Angels – ethereal and not of this world – passed through the brick and concrete, singing their songs of praise.

And the world sighed, and yawned, and God woke up. And thus ended the seventh day.

exegesis: noun, plural

This was a silly. And so beginneth my set of "cheat" FFMs, as I will this very day be departing for my conference!

/me titters.

I was sort of hoping for, "Actually, mate, I was bleedin' knackered. You try knocking together 242,017,04544 four-by-fours into trees and see how you like it. And don't even get me started on atoms. Wish I bloody hadn't..."

That sounds an awful lot like a Minecraft reference. If so, GOOD ON YOU! Also, you here demonstrate the time-worn and oft-confirmed fact that "God speaks English". He does, doesn't he?

I certainly didn't expect to see that. :| I was half expecting God to pop up and be like "Bible studies? On a Sunday? That sounds like work to me..."

This is better, though. Out of interest, I've heard that some people take the seven "days" of creation to represent seven much longer periods of time. Were you going for something like that or am I reading way too much into this?

Yes, that was pretty much the idea, yes. ;)Read up on some biblical exegesis for this particular piece, interesting to see what people think these things "really mean"...

That makes sense. I initially took it at face value and thought "Yikes...the Garden of Eden is surprisingly crowded."
