Where the world comes to study the Bible

Report Inappropriate Ad


The book of Genesis is the most important book ever written and has had a greater influence on history than any other book ever produced. As a result, no other book of the Bible is quoted more often or referred to so frequently as the book of Genesis. There are at least 165 passages in Genesis that are either directly quoted or clearly referred to in the NT. Over 100 of these quotations are taken from the first 11 chapters of Genesis.

The book of Genesis answers the most basic and yet profound questions of life:

1. Who am I?
2. Where did I come from?
3. Is there a God?
4. And if there is a God: a. How can I know him? b. What is His purpose for my life?

If a person believes he originated from cosmic goo or is a descendant of apes, that will have a profound effect on his worldview – essentially reducing mankind to little more than a cosmic accident. On the other had, if a person believes that we were divinely created in the image of an all-powerful, holy, and loving God, that will have a dramatic impact in elevating mankind to a place of great significance in the vast arena of God’s creation.
