The Bible’s FAQ
THE BIBLE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The first book of the Bible is Genesis. Genesis speaks of beginnings; of what God did in the beginning. The book of Genesis is foundational to the understanding of the rest of the Bible. The message in Genesis is the outline of the Biblical message as a whole. It is a book that speaks about relationships, highlighting those between God and His creation, between God and humankind, and between human beings. It clearly teaches that the one true God is sovereign over all that exists (i.e., His entire creation).
Genesis introduces us to the way in which God initiates and makes covenants with His chosen people, pledging His love and faithfulness to them and calling them to promise theirs to Him. It establishes sacrifice as the substitution of life for life. It gives us the first hint of God’s provision for redemption to reconcile us back to Himself and it also contains the oldest and most profound statement concerning the significance of faith. More than half the Hebrews 11 list of Faithfuls are people found in the book of Genesis.
