This research paper is the culmination of a wonderful and enlightening course offered by Calvary Chapel Bible College; a verse-by-verse, in-depth study, into the Book of Genesis. The lectures were given by Pastor Clark Van Wick of Calvary Chapel Bible Fellowship, in Temecula, California. Pastor Van Wick not only has a deep knowledge of God 's revelation to His people, but he pours out the love of Jesus into his students hearts throughout each lecture. The enthusiasm and joy Pastor Van Wick has for Bible exposition is felt by his students in every verse. Thank you, Pastor Van Wick!
The Book of Genesis; its purpose and divisions. The Book of Genesis is the first of sixty-six individual revelations of God Himself to us, His creation, whom He obviously loves more than we could possibly comprehend. I would hope to be able to grasp a small iota of that love when I finally am able to stand in His presence. Genesis is foundational; the necessary table legs that the succeeding sixty-five books stand boldly upon. “If the Bible were somehow expurgated of the Book of Genesis (as many people today would prefer), the rest of the Bible would be incomprehensible. It would be like a building without a ground floor, or a bridge with no support.”1 Genesis is appropriately named, as it is the Greek word γένεσις, which is defined as birth, lineage, or descent. I would venture at this point that Genesis should not be limited to one, but encompasses all three defining words, in great detail.
