What are the major points of Genesis?
Genesis tells the beginning of everything except God’s beginnings. It tells only the beginnings with no finality. Upon its truths rest all future revelations of God to us. It depicts the Creation, the fall, the flood, the beginning of languages, the Abrahamic Call and Covenant, the story of Joseph and Jacob’s final blessing. Genesis is the book of beginnings portraying Jesus Christ, our Creator God.
Genesis shows the beginnings of the world, the human race, the beginning of sin in the world, the beginning of the promise of redemption, the beginning of family life, the beginning of civilization, the beginning of the nations of the world, the beginning of the Hebrew people. Genesis tells of humanity’s failure under every test and in every condition.
