About This Course

Genesis 1–11 contains some of the most familiar stories in the Bible. In its ancient context, this collection was not a simple historical record. Rather, it was a forceful argument condemning Egypt and encouraging Israel to follow Moses to the Promised Land. This course provides an analysis of Genesis 1:1-11:9, looking at the background, the literary structure, the original meaning, the theological purpose, and modern applications.
