Genesis is a story that begins with God’s intent to bless his people. That intention to bless continues even when humanity rebels against God from the very start. Yet in spite of humanity’s unfaithfulness, God displays his faithfulness to generation after generation. And he promises that one of Eve’s descendants will mend what has been broken by humanity’s sin. No wonder Jesus started here when he “interpreted…in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself" (Lk 24:27). Genesis is the first chapter in the great Story of God’s faithfulness which endures to all generations (Ps 119:90).
