The Book of Genesis

The Book of Genesis: A book on beginning, a story on living in the light of a covenant-making God. The characters of Genesis consistently find themselves walking towards uncertain futures. But—equipped with the promises of God—they press forward, learning to trust God in spite of their mistakes and failures. As we read and study Genesis, we unearth truths that form, shape, and guide us, even today.

Ultimately, Genesis shows us that being human is messy. There are moments of strained relationships, violence, distrust, and fear. But through it, the text teaches us what it looks like to persevere and find hope in God. Though following God might not always look like what we expect, His promises protect and sustain us. As we read this text, may it transform not only our personal lives but also the world around us. Amen.
