Where do you get the part about the sun being turned off? And planet=waters?

Can you bring any biblical reference for "seven days of Moses"?

How conceited! That God would reviel to Moses what only WE (or YOU) can

The question of "creation ex nihilo" or not has kept theologians busy for

Jesus (or the Evangelists) were well aquainted with the midrashic concept of
"there is no early and late in the Torah". This gives the interpreter
license to do almost anything. We just must remember that midrash is just
that - midrash and not a literal interpretation.
