Agape Bible Study - The Pentateuch Part 1
The Book of Genesis

The lessons are organized into subjects of one week study per lesson
This course is a study of the Book of Genesis
All references for the course are found in the Course Bibliography
The Book of Genesis is the first of five parts which comprise what Scripture calls "The Book of Moses." The title "Genesis" is from the Greek meaning: "Beginning." It is the first movement in the great liturgical symphony of the written record of God's interaction with mankind. The "notes" of this "overture" are the divinely inspired words describing people and events which are meant as instruction for us, as St. Paul wrote concerning all of Old Testament Scripture: These things happened to them as an example, and they have been written down as a warning to us, upon whom the end of the ages has come (1 Cor 10:11). Join us in the study of the origins of man, his exercise and abuse of God's gift of free will, and the beginning of God's comprehensive plan for the salvation of humanity.
