In the Bible we are told next to nothing about the little bit of time (ie everlasting) just before creation and very little about the time (ie everlasting) just after the ending.
Yes God and sons of God used the matter drawn out of the waters of creation to make this universe within this time or these ages (aion or eons). But I tend to think that God created the matter when time was created. So there never was a time when there was not matter. So Matter had its origin at the brink of eternity, but is not actually eternal matter. God and His sons could have been the "US" of Genesis, but I am not sure.
This is an overlap between orthodoxy and certain LDS assertions.-- But was taught by at least one orthodox ECF that I know of( Irenaeus).
The Bible only hints at what is beyond time. I do not think it is the mission of the Bible or its canon to reveal all about our ultimate human destiny in Eternity. The Bible is designed to deliver the Gospel which saves us in this age and guides to become Christ-like-ready to meet out Father in Eternity. So the Bible canon can prepare us and make-up presentable to God ready to undergo our next step. There is quite an explanation to this view of the Bible.- and I think this is why Traditional Churches say the Bible is complete. It would be very hard to explain on a forum like this-- but that is the gist of it.
