Bringing you deeper biblical understanding
Mary Evans writes on Genesis 1—11, ‘the scene setter for the Bible’. The orderly creation by God followed by the gradual disintegration caused by sin climaxing in the Flood and Babel. This picture of humanity in a total mess makes sense of everything else that follows. God longs for human beings to relate to him in love and obedience. Genesis 1-11 explains why and how sin makes this impossible.
