Question: Is DNA in the Bible?

Answer: Yes! The answer can be found in the Creation narrative from the book of Genesis.

For an in-depth Bible study answering this question, check out the MP3 sermon:

In the beginning God created DNA

Also, below are brief notes taken from the above sermon, naming the topics discussed in this Bible study on DNA in the Bible. They are in no way a detailed review of the sermon, but this sermon audio is thorough on answering the question.

Sermon notes:

Gen. 1-11 Prehistory

Gen 12-50 Patriarchs

[Col 1:16-17 NASB] For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold (synistēmi: place in order) together.

DNA: 1953 Watson/Crick; 1957 Specific Sequences; 3.2 Billion base pairs in specific order.

The information in DNA is stored as a code made up of four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T).

DNA bases pair up with each other, A with T and C with G, to form units called base pairs. Each base is also attached to a sugar molecule and a phosphate molecule. Together, a base, sugar, and phosphate are called a nucleotide.

TIME

[Heb 1:2-3 NASB] in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world (αἰών: time). (for ever, an unbroken age, perpetuity of time, eternity; the worlds, universe; period of time, age) And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

A new study suggests that there are around 700 quintillion planets in the universe, but only one like Earth.

The Earth’s Mass

Our mass is just enough to keep a thin layer of gases above us. Any more mass means a heavier, more destructive atmosphere with more deadly gases staying here. Less gravity, we couldn’t hold onto oxygen and other life-support gases.

[Pro 25:2 NASB] It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.

GENESIS 1:1-2

[Gen 1:1-2 NASB] In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.

But the earth became without form, and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep

[Isa 34:11 NASB] But pelican and hedgehog will possess it, And owl and raven will dwell in it; And He will stretch over it the line of desolation And the plumb line of emptiness.

[Isa 45:18 NASB] For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens (He is the God who formed the earth and made it, He established it [and] did not create it a waste (tohuw) place, [but] formed it to be inhabited), "I am the LORD, and there is none else.

[Jer 4:23-25 NASB] I looked on the earth, and behold, [it was] formless (tohuw) and void (bohuw); And to the heavens, and they had no light. I looked on the mountains, and behold, they were quaking, And all the hills moved to and fro. I looked, and behold, there was no man, And all the birds of the heavens had fled.
