Gap Theory Opening up Other Scripture-
Repeating themes, once we know that Genesis 2:4 refers to different generations of Earth and the universe, we can also explore if similar sentence structure is used elsewhere.
1.What is the subject matter?
2.When and how did it come about?
3.The subsequent generation/manifestation and how it/they come about. Is the first one created?
3 When was the statement(s) issued and is it a ‘day’ of importance? ‘In the day’
Genesis 2:4 (KJV)
1. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth……
2….when they were created….
3…..In the day that the …
4. …LORD God made the earth and the heavens
1. This is the book of the generations of Adam….
2. …In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him…..
4….Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam,(translated ‘mankind ‘in the NKJV)…
3….In the day when they were created
More Specific Pattern and Sentence Syntax key
1. A description of the subject matter: the first generation or first manifestations something or someone and subsequent generations. It may be referring to a generation previously described (were created) or generation just made or created.
2… How the first generation came about , was it created or made or born or begat.
3.…'in the day’ seems to be an emphasis of importance. ‘When they were created’ means a previous time.
4….‘in the day’ may also mean when the statement was issued.

Is the Syntax Synchronised for Revelatory Purposes?
Revisiting Genesis 5:1
1. This is the book of the generations of Adam….Subject matter Adam and his generations.
2. …In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him…..how did he get there? Created ,‘In the day’, the time the sentence is issued and its importance is thus emphasized

4….In the day when they were created ….How did they get here? Created
