    AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO. QUESTIONS ON GENESIS, PL 34 INTRODUCTION. When we read with a certain swiftness the Sacred Scriptures called canonical and compared the translations with other manuscripts that were adjusted to the version of the Septuagint, it seemed useful to us to gather in a writing some questions that came to mind so that we would not forget. The thought of Augustine on the two ethical categories of sin and grace is of great importance in the history of Christian theology. His system of grace and predestination prevailed for many centuries, although not without strong opposition, and underwent, through scholastic elaboration, substantial changes in order to save the freedom of the will; and finally it reappeared in the conception.

    In the book, Augustine took the view that everything in the universe was created simultaneously by God, and not in seven days like a plain account of Genesis would require. He argues that the six-day structure of creation presented in the book of Genesis represents a logical framework, rather than the passage of time in a physical way. Thereby, Augustine finds the whole trinity present in Genesis 1: God, the son, and the Holy Spirit, which is the spirit of God mentioned in the second verse, "whereby the Divine Goodness and Love are to be understood." Augustine has too keen an eye to miss the inconsistency of heaven and earth being created both in the first verse and later on.
