Books of the Bible

Genesis is the first book of the part of the Bible Christians call the Old Testament and Jews call the Tanakh. It is likely the most well known book of the Old Testament, although its length makes it one of the more difficult books to read all the way through.

Bible Stories from Genesis

Genesis includes some of the best-known Bible stories, including:

The Jewish creation myth at the beginning of the book is used as the basis for creationism.

Gen 1 and 2

These really do need to be discussed together as they are the creation of the Heaven and Earth. It is clearly two stories combined. Gen 2 almost completely disregards the events of Gen 1.

Gen 2:5 "And no plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for Jehovah God had not caused it to rain upon the earth: and there was not a man to till the ground"

This of course contradicts Gen 1:29 "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food"

In Gen 1 God simply makes Adam and Eve in his own image quite cool really, no fuss, "poof!" we have man, in Gen 2, there is a big carry on with dirt and ribs and stuff, I guess Gen 1 just did not make woman inferior to man enough.

There are more contradictions in both chapters, and things that make no sense, for example: light before the sun and the stars. And a really big puzzle, where did God live before he created heaven?

Gen 3

The Snake

In Genesis there is no mention of the snake being Satan, maybe in other books this occurs, but in Genesis he is just a talking snake.
