Genesis is the book of beginnings. The seed of every Bible Doctrine can be found in this book, and indeed this book should be referred to in any doctrinal study. The foundation for the total depravity of man, and the universal salvation in Christ is established in the first three chapters.
Genesis is a Greek word meaning “origin, source, generation, or beginning.” The original Hebrew title bere’shiyth means “In the Beginning.”
Christian Bible scholars attribute Moses as the author of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
