SubjectBible. Genesis I-XI--Theology
The goal of this project was to explore the biblical theological themes found in the first eleven chapters of Genesis. Chapter 1 briefly outlines these themes, the “building blocks” of the gospel, and also establishes a definition for biblical theology—a definition which governs the hermeneutic used to interpret this section of Genesis. Chapters 2 through 4 explore God’s sovereignty in creation, the specific creation of man as the image bearer of God, and the unique relationship between God and ’adam in Eden. Chapters 5 and 6 exegete Genesis 3 and investigate the major themes connected with the sinful fall of mankind. Chapters 7 deals with the worsening impact of sin through Adam’s descendants, while chapters 8 through 9 consider the flood, Noah’s salvation, and his subsequent fall in the renewed creation. Chapter 10 concludes the project by looking at the tower of Babel and the genealogy that leads to Abram. This project shows how the basic framework of the gospel—including God’s sovereignty, man’s depravity, Christ’s redemption, and the response of faith—are all established in the first book of the Bible.
