The Book of Genesis: Overview and Introduction (Part 3)

By Brian Watts in podcasts on Jul 7, 2019

Genesis 1:1 (ESV) “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” This sublime
pronouncement forms the opening words of the Holy Word of God. It is essentially a
concise statement of the doctrine of creation, which is the most basic doctrine of our
faith. These words lay the foundation not only for everything that follows in the Book of
Genesis but particularly also for everything that follows in God’s Word. Therefore it is
crucial to state that everything depends on the first verse of Genesis.
