Was each day of creation 24 hours?
Yes, the days of creation were literal days of 24 hours each.
Since in the Bible the same word “day” can sometimes refer to a less defined period of time (for example, “in that day,” “day of salvation,” etc.), some contend that the “days” in the biblical creation account are actually much longer periods of time. However, Genesis 1 clarifies each day as being an “evening” and a “morning.” For this division of a day to be relevant, the day cannot refer to millions of years.
Some believe the days in Genesis 1 were not literal 24-hour periods. Did God create using a process of evolution? How long were the days of creation?
