Genesis is a book of beginnings. The first ten chapters will cover 1/3 of human history! It starts with Adam and goes through Noah, and ten more chapters it begins the nation of Israel through which God will send His Son to redeem mankind 2/3 through man's history on earth.
It starts with God creating in the beginning out of nothing. God spoke and all come into being. Now that makes more sense than everything springing forth from nothing adding billions and billions of years to make it happen. It did just happen....when God spoke!!
We see the perfect creation and then the fall and it's results, all in Genesis.
Well, so much for today.... I'm leaving now to take my wife to the airport at 3:30am. Mike Mutchler
