Genesis

Author – Moses
Time – Creation to 1650 B.C.

Summary – "Genesis" means "beginning". As its title implies, it is the foundation of the Bible, on which everything is built. The book tells of the Creation followed by the rebellion of our first parents. It then records the growth of wickedness in the earth followed by the flood in which the only human survivors were Noah and his family. Another rebellion against God’s commands is stopped by the introduction of different languages. The rest of the book is the early history of the Jewish nation (also called the Israelites or the children of Israel.) This mainly concerns four outstanding men – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph.
