How did the world begin? Why is there sin and evil? What is our purpose on earth? How do we know who to believe? How do we define sin? What makes humans different from the rest of creation? Can we trust God?
Think about the questions behind the questions we field as ministers. Most of these questions point to our innate desire to know about our origins. And not just about our family history. We want to know the whole story. We want to know about the first man and woman and how they got here. We want to know how “here” got here—how the earth began, how the sun started shining, where the stars came from. If we understand our beginnings, we can better understand who we are and where we’re going.
Studying Genesis can help your church have the foundation to answer these tougher questions in life. When Genesis was first written, it provided a God-given corrective to a plethora of fanciful creation myths in the ancient world. Today Genesis remains the trustworthy source for learning who we are, why we’re here, and most importantly, who our Creator is.
