The Book of Genesis is, in some ways, one of the most important books in the Bible.  To properly understand the entire Bible, one must clearly understand Genesis.  In fact, the New Testament quotes from Genesis at least 165 times. Key doctrine and themes discussed in this class will be: sin, redemption, justification, the fall, evil, Israel, the promise of the Messiah, creation, and covenants.  Key stories and characters in Genesis are: Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph.  The Book of Genesis also serves as the first book of the Pentateuch.  We will study the Book of Genesis verse by verse as well as using a full PowerPoint presentation.

This course is expected to last for 10 weeks, from September 12 to December 5 (two weeks planned to not meet).

We will meet Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:15pm

Our study will include:

  • Revelation – what it means regarding our Bibles
  • The source of the Bible – where did it come from?
  • Inspiration – what does it mean?
  • Inerrancy – does the Bible contain errors?
  • How was Scripture recorded?
  • Is the Bible I hold in my hands the Word of God?
  • Textual criticism – friend or foe?
  • Illumination – understanding the Bible
  • Is the Bible enough – are we missing something?
  • Hermeneutics – studying the Bible
