Why are there two distinct accounts of human creation in Genesis?


Are the two accounts irreconcilably different?

Thanks for asking a question on thisisyourbible.com

If you read the accounts carefully, you will note that Genesis 1 is a very "high-level" account of creation. Genesis 2 goes into detail about the creation of man and woman and their environment. The two chapters are not contradictory but rather complementary.

I hope you have found this helpful.

God bless,
Mike
