In the Beginning…God
In the first eleven chapters of Genesis, we find a record of the creation of the universe and of mankind, (chapters 1 & 2). We also find the origin of human depravity & sin in the “fall of man” shown in Genesis chapter 3. We see its devastating effects in the wickedness of mankind & its horrible consequences in the judgment of God in the curse (chapters 3 & 4), in the flood (chapters 6-9), and in the confusion at Babel (chapter 11). We also see the grace of God in His provisions for mankind’s salvation, beginning with the promise of salvation in Genesis 3:15, and being demonstrated in the ark and God’s covenant with Noah (chapters 6-9).
