Genesis: Book of Origins—Part I provides the background and overview of this amazing first book of the Torah.
The Bible’s first book, The Book of Origins, is divided into two parts. First to be told are the pre-history and creation stories (Chapters 1–11). Next comes the creation of Israel with the Abraham family cycle of stories (Genesis 12–50). In addition to reciting the origin of earth, humanity, and the animals, Genesis tells the origin of human language, brotherly dissension, the family, disobedience, sin, views of God, ecological disaster, human vocation, and much more.
This MP3 downloadable version (like its CD counterpart, a separate product) covers the first 25 chapters of Genesis, ending at the death of Abraham, just as his son Isaac, comes into view. Addressed are background issues such as authorship, time of writing, audience, themes, structure, the theological focus so relevant to today. All are intended to give fresh insight into what may be familiar stories. You will learn distinctions in how the different authors understood God and especially how these stories are applicable for us today.
The companion workbook has pages for each chapter, in order, with 4-to-5 questions each. They will help you dive below the surface to glean new insights.
