Outside of the Gospels, Genesis, the Bible’s first book, contains many of the most familiar accounts. From Creation in Chapter 1 to Joseph’s incredible story that closes out the book, Genesis astounds with examples of God’s power and providence throughout. The name “Genesis” is associated with beginnings, and many popular culture items have used the word over the years: Korean automaker Hyundai, for example, named its first luxury car the Genesis since it was the start of something new for the company.
Key verse: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (1:1)
