About the Book of Genesis Bible Study
A study of the book of Genesis is an invitation to contemplate the creation stories and remember with the Israelites their ancestors in faith. Genesis is a story about the beginnings; of the universe, of humans, of joys and sorrows, successes and failures.
It focuses on the relationship between God and his people.
While the themes of Genesis are universal, they can be complex because they are expressed in the styles and settings of the ancient Near East.
The five sessions cover the book of Genesis, its origins in the oral traditions of the Hebrew people, and the lives of the great Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph.
Participants will reflect on the relationship of the Hebrew people with God and how we can grow spiritually with insights from their perspectives through the lens of modern Catholic Biblical scholarship and the academic foundation of the Little Rock Scripture Study
