Goals

The main character of whole Genesis composition is the LIGHT - the first creation of God. The author implies light as main building material for all subsequent stages of the Сreation, the most important of which is the man creation. However, the culmination of the world development seems to man's spiritual improvement, the pursuit of the divine light of his soul, what the seventh day (Sabbath) was given for.
