Matthew One Echoes Genesis One

In Genesis 1, the earth is formless, void and covered in darkness, and the Spirit of God waits for God to speak forth light before he brings the dark turmoil to order...

In Matthew 1 the earth is covered in darkness as fallen mankind has now multiplied his dark nature across the face of the whole earth and is subduing it to his now tyrannical rule. Into this dark, tempestuous raging of sinful human desire, the Spirit hovers once again waiting, after thousands of years, for God the Father to speak forth the light of his Son, before he begins the work of bringing the whole cosmos to order in, through and for Christ.
