Genesis 1-12: In The Beginning

Genesis 1-12: In The Beginning

God’s revelation to humanity begins with the book of Genesis, showing us the beginning of history, God’s purposes, and His relationship to mankind. In Genesis, we see God’s original intention and plan for His creation and how humanity chooses a different path of death and destruction. These first chapters of Genesis sets the stage for God’s ultimate plan of restoring humanity and creation back to Himself. As you study this course, catch a new glimpse of God’s love and plan for redemption in our world and your own life.

God’s revelation to humanity begins with the book of Genesis, which means that the importance of Genesis for us can hardly be overstated. It contains the truth about the origin of all things and is the key to understanding all that has happened in the subsequent history of the world. But more than that, it provides a foundation for all the great truth about God and His ways that are progressively revealed in the Bible. Genesis helps us to understand the meaning of history, and in particular, of God’s purposes that are being worked out, especially in His relationship to people.
