Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn to the first chapter of the Bible, Genesis, chapter 1. Genesis means origin or beginning. And this book, the book of Genesis, lays the groundwork, not only for the book of Exodus which logically and necessarily follows from it, but also for the rest of Scripture. Matthew Henry, a long time ago, said "Genesis is a...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to the very first chapter again, Genesis, chapter 1.

So we're going to see how far we can get tonight...
