Genesis is a book of beginnings and foundations - a book into which one can continue to dig and continue to find unexpected treasures of truth. It seems impossible to exhaust the layers of truth in this book. In Genesis, if we persevere with seeking and believing hearts, we find the bottom-line answers to many of our puzzled human questions.
But, it is also a controversial book, with Christians divided on the nature and integrity of the first eleven chapters.
Because these eleven chapters lay the foundations both of human history and of several highly significant biblical doctrines these studies focus on these chapters. Indeed, about half of the studies are set in Genesis 1 to 3. Only five studies focus on Abraham and his descendants. Also included are three appendicies about the theory of evolution.
The studies are of varying lengths. If you are using them in a group study setting it is suggested that some studies be spread over more than one session.
Note that it is hoped, when time permits, to upload a series of shorter, simpler studies.
