Dispersion and Descent

Last week, we watched Noah, the preacher of righteousness, become the participant in a God-initiated, God-sustained covenant. We also watched as the second Adam descended into sin, resulting in a curse on his son’s son. This week we will examine the curse of Ham’s offspring. We’ll also see how long the memory of widespread devastation kept Earth’s inhabitants from sin. And we’ll trace the path of Noah’s descendants all the way to Abram, the father of the nation of Israel.

Paradise Lost

At the end of Genesis 2, we find ourselves in a perfect garden, an ordered creation pronounced unequivocally good by its Creator. But human experience tells us that we are far from such a place now. In Genesis 3, we are given an explanation for the brokenness, sorrow,...

Six Days and a Rest

This week the curtain goes up on the great story of Genesis. In its opening scene, we find God doing what He does best: bring light into darkness, order after chaos, rest after toil, all through the power of his word....

The God Who Was in the Beginning

The first verse of Genesis makes clear that God is the Creator of heaven and earth. The Bible attributes all creation to God and God alone. This is a significant statement because it speaks definitively against other explanations of creation....
