    I think light from the previously created heaven (v1) was not seen (v2) on the previously created earth (v1). Not that they were conjoined.

    In the beginning God created heaven and earth. We are not told how long creation in the beginning was. We are only told about the 6 literal 24 hour days that took place starting in v2.

    Then we are told in the following verses that the Spirit of God moved upon the waters of an already-existing earth, created the light, then created the sun afterwards. The earth was already in existence before the sun was created...if you take the Genesis account literally

    Well if you take it literally heaven was already created also. That would include stars (suns) -light. It does not say God created the light v3-4. It says let light be where it was not, in a desolate, undistinguishable, dark earth. Lights in v14 were for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years, not just for light.

    It's probably because the sun moon and stars are the population of the firmament.

    Look at the structure, God goes back in days 456 and fills the 3 environments he has made:

    1 environment 4 population
    2 environment 5 population
    3 environment 6 population

    "Let there be light" --- is a reflection that the truth of God was now hovering over the deep darkness of this world, and giving light to the purpose of giving the world life.

    Jesus is God. His role and identity however, is deeply embedded in Genesis. Yes, Jesus is all over the place in Genesis. Keep seeking! Don't be discouraged!

    Yes, I see this too. The organizational structure of the Genesis account is not a sequential order. As you point out, all the domains are listed in the first three days; then all the domains are populated in the next three days.
