At the beginning, in the book of Genesis there is this phrase: ‘ וְר֣וּחַ אֱלֹהִ֔ים מְרַחֶ֖פֶת עַל־פְּנֵ֥י הַמָּֽיִם׃’
At the beginning of G-ds creation of the heaven and the earth, when the earth was being unformed and void, with darkness over the surface of the deep, a wind from G-d swept over the water - Or, the spirit of G-d hovered over the water - Or, G-ds breath moved over the water.
Regardless of the possible translations/Interpretations I gave, and others, I noticed the wording ‘over (the face/surface of) the water’, and the fact that there is also a darkness and the deep.
They seem to exist in the physical. So my question is if G-d before He created the sky, seas, universe and solar system etc. created the physical (a physical world/sphere)? Did G-d created the heavenly realm and the earthly realm first before we arrive in verse 2? Is Genesis 1:1 some kind of intro? How do we fill up the gap? Because ‘out of nowhere’ there is this earth covered with water, this darkness and the deep; and every creative act from G-d described in Genesis seems to involve these elements (wether it’s the light that appears in the darkness, the waters being used, the earth being used etc.)
