It seems that some choose to read into the text of Genesis 1 a title and also claim that day 1 begins in v3. Why would the text go through the trouble of connecting all the “verses” that follow to the first verse?
Why if verse one is the beginning, why would day 1 start later on an undisclosed day, arbitrarily labeled as day1?
The idea of a title likened to the toledoth interpretation also seems curious because it’s unlike the toledoth template. It bears no resemblances.
What is the purpose of the conjunctive being added after v1? Are they intended to point back to one reference point? Are they meaningless? Are they evidence of poor grammar? Or are they divinely inspired, intentional and significant; and how are they significant?
