Genesis is the book of Beginnings. In it we see the beginning of creation, mankind, sin, and God’s plan of redemption. Sin is introduced as well as the consequences of sin which is death. In the first eleven chapters we watch everything unfold through the lens of four major events: Creation, the fall, the flood, and the tower of Babel. In the final chapters we continue to watch everything unfold through the lives of four great men: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph.
