01B Creation, Worship, Cultural Mandate (new) PIP PP

God places Adam, created in the image of God, in the garden. The meaning of “to subdue” and “to keep” is discussed. The tree of life and river of life, useful expressions for worship, become eternal symbols. Bara, the hebrew word for create, occurs 86 times in scripture, and refers exclusively to activity by God, never humans.
