Genesis was originally written to ancient readers (and probably told by grandparents to grandchildren around campfires before that). It was not written primarily to answer relatively recent questions like “How old is the earth?” or “What is DNA and how is God involved in that?”
So our study will try to ask the original questions Genesis intended to answer. Who is God? What does it mean to be made in God’s image? How did humanity get to our current state? How is Israel’s God different than the other “gods”? This will help us to see how Genesis is best interpreted and applied today.
