The Genesis creation narrative, found in the first two chapters of the Book of Genesis in the Bible, is one of several Ancient Mesopotamian creation myths, differing from the others in its monotheistic outlook. It is part of the biblical canons of Judaism and Christianity and describes the beginning of the earth and life, and the creation of humanity in the image of God.
