Genesis : Spiritual Standpoint Bible Study
Genesis is the first book of the Law and also the first book of the entire Bible. The name Genesis literally means "In the Beginning." It explains the actual events of one of the most debated subjects of our current day...the origin of life. Genesis describes the Lord God, who is infinite and all-powerful, creating everything that exists, by the power of His spoken Word, out of nothing. He essentially creates material matter out of nonmaterial nothing. Summary: Genesis is the single most important book of the Bible. It is the beginning and foundation of the Bible, on which everything else is built. Everything revealed in the other books of the Bible has its beginning in the book of Genesis. It is the first book of the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Hebrew Bible. As both the Hebrew and Greek titles suggest, the book of Genesis is a book of beginnings. Genesis and Revelation stand as two end posts bridging the revelation of God to man; the first telling how it all began, the second revealing in symbol how it all will finish. In Genesis we see the beginnings of all that Revelation predicts as the consummation of the Divine purpose in the earth. For example: -Genesis speaks of a natural creation (Gen 1); Revelation of a spiritual creation (Rev 3:14). -In Genesis the serpent speaks (Gen 3:1-5); in Revelation it is restrained (Rev 20:2). -In Genesis, the curse is imposed (Gen 3:17); in Revelation it is removed (Rev 22:3). -In Genesis, sorrow and death make their appearance (Gen 3:16-19); in Revelation they are taken away (Rev 21:4). -In Genesis, access to the tree of life is denied (Gen 3:24); in Revelation, access to it is opened (22:7). -In Genesis, the first paradise is closed to man (3:23); in Revelation it is opened to him (Rev 21:25).
