Genesis is all about the creation, fall, and redemption of the human race through Jesus Christ. Around this centers all divine revelation and Scriptural truth. Genesis is the seedbed of the whole Bible and is essential to the correct understanding of every part of it. Genesis is the foundation on which all divine revelation rests and on which it is built up. Not only that, but it enters into and forms a very integral part of that revelation. Every great doctrine of Scripture finds its roots in Genesis in germ, type, or simple revelation. Main Purpose for the book of Genesis: To reveal to man the origin of the heavens and the earth and all things therein; to declare God as the personal Creator and show that nothing evolved through billions of years; to reveal a there was life before even Adam and Eve were created and its destruction before Adam; to record the restoration of the earth to a second habitable state and give the facts concerning man and animals as we know them today; and to record the history of the fall of man, the second curse on the earth, and the sinful career of the earth for 2,391 years to the time of Moses, as an introduction to his law.
