Summary
Paul's view of creation, like Philo's in his contemporary commentary on Genesis 1–2, interweaves an interpretation of the world's beginning, humanity's beginning, and God's intentions before the beginning. Jonathan Worthington shows that recognizing this basic interplay between »Beginning« and »Before« aids our understanding of difficult and debated passages in both ancient interpreters regarding creation.
