A Chronological Bible Reading 3 Creation
Day one Genesis 1:2b-5, light/darkness
Day two Genesis 1:6-8, water separated from land
Day three Genesis 2:5-6, 1:9-12, plants
Day four Genesis 1:14-19, sun, moon and stars
Day five Genesis 1:20-23, Fish and birds
Day six Genesis 1:24-25, animals
Genesis 2:7, man
I believe the Bible teaches that the creation days are literal 24 hour days because God says, "the evening and the morning were the...day" God spoke everything into existence. That is why the trees and other plants are old. God made trees and plants, he did not plant seeds. He made adult plants and adult animals that could reproduce. He made a man not a boy who needs to be looked after.
I find it interesting that God made the plants before the sun. God also created the fish before the bears probably to give the fish a head start!
