What's the reason for those three seemingly very different entities being created through Briah (ברא) as opposed to Asia (עשה) or simply emergence:

  • Genesis 1:1: "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."
  • Genesis 1:21: "So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind."
  • Genesis 1:27: "So God created the man in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."
