Theme: Genesis is a real-life history of individual people, a fact that is emphasized by the ten sections within it that usually begin, “These are the records of the generations of …” (NASB). This thrust provides a natural unity to the book. Genesis is a book about the beginning of many things: the world, man, sin, civilization, the nations, and Israel. Genesis also contains important theological themes, including the doctrine of the living, personal God; the doctrine of the loving, personal God; the doctrine of man made in the image of God, then of sinful man; the anticipation of a Redeemer; and the covenant promises made to the nation of Israel.
Genesis takes us from creation to the settling of Jacob’s descendants in Egypt; although three-fourths of the book concentrates on the four generations from the call of Abraham to the death of Joseph (2091-1805 B.C.).

NOTE: Please remember not to give up if you miss a day or two, catch-up reading is better than quitting because you missed a day or so!
As our comments from each diary will not carry over to each new week I am going to keep a list of readers here so we remember who is reading with us, for encouragement, for prayer & for fellowship. Am hoping we will use each other’s first names eventually, mine is Elaine.
