Introduction

Genesis 1-4 tells of Creation, Fall, and the dreadful consequences of sin in the human family. Genesis 12-50 give the account of God’s chosen family. Chapters 5-11 connect those two themes. This section is framed by two genealogies of 10 generations each: Adam to Noah (5:1-32); Noah to Terah (11:10-26). The first genealogy and the subsequent account of Noah are the focus of this series.
