In the beginning…God! From the very first words of the Bible we learn that it is a book about God. The Bible is a book about who God is and what God has done. He is a God who has revealed himself as the Creator of the universe whose powerful words brought forth everything that has ever been created. In the first eleven chapters of Genesis we see history on a universal scale. We learn about the beginnings of the earth, the plants and animals, and the crowning achievement of God’s creation: human beings. We also discover how sin enters the world and the devastating effects it has on everything and everyone God created. Fortunately, we also recognize God purposely reaching out to fallen humanity to provide a path to redemption through his covenantal love.
