Why does the Bible begin with “in the beginning”? Did it have to? What does it tell us about God’s desires for his creation, from before the beginning of all things? What do the first eleven chapters of Genesis tell us, not just about the world in general, but about our world, about our origin, our identity, our purpose? What does it say about how it all came undone, and how God plans to bring us all home again?
Genesis 1-11 is a challenge to worldviews that are mythical and cyclical. It presents a cohesive linear story that moves us all from a cosmic beginning toward God’s intended climax.
So let’s begin at the beginning in our journey and find our place in the grand story of God and His beloved creation.
