Discovering ... The Book of Genesis
Seeing the Source of All Things
Written by S Scott Richardson
Creation is often the point of focus when thinking of “beginnings” in the book of Genesis. The theme of “beginning” that runs throughout the book reaches far beyond the physical creation. We must never overlook the fact that within Genesis, God is presented as the source of all things, both physical and spiritual.
Seeing the theme of Genesis, we begin to observe the wonder and majesty of God’s power in all things. God not only provided the physical, but began to unfold for mankind His plan for the ages—His plan for providing man a way of redemption and reconciliation.
