Genesis means “origin” and thus is the perfect title for the book that records the origins of all human history.  Genesis is a real-life history record of the origins of the world, man, sin, civilization, the nations, and Israel, as well as a revelation of the God of all creation.

Genesis also introduces God’s purpose and plan in all things by progressively revealing important theological themes such as, the doctrine of the living, personal God; the doctrine of man made in the image of God; the doctrine of the fall and the consequences of man’s sin; the promise of a Redeemer (3:15); the call of Abraham and the raising up of a nation (Israel) and the covenant promises God made with Israel (12:1-3; 15:18-21).
