About-

In the Bible's introduction are embedded foundational perspectives on "who God is" and "who humans are and what we should be doing" that are developed throughout the book. Genesis 1-3 is the story of beginnings, depicting who the Creator-God is, what this God intended for the creation, especially for the human creation, how humans messed up, and at least a hint of what God is doing about this. Like Jesus, the Apostle Paul, and early church leaders, when we want to know what God intended, we listen to the Bible's introduction. The Story of Beginnings deals with such questions as "What is the Image of God?" "Who were Adam and Eve?" "What does blessing the Sabbath mean?" and "How shall we understand 'the Fall' and its implications today?"
