At the beginning of Scripture, the Holy Spirit, through the prophet Moses, introduces us at once to God in the essential fullness of his being. It is to God and God alone that we are brought. We hear him, through the divine revelation, penetrating earth’s silence, shining into the primordial darkness, with the sole intent of creating a sphere in which he might display his sovereignty, incomparability, and power. Unlike too many recent scholarly works on this book that have concentrated on the formation and development of the Pentateuch, John Currid is concerned to focus on the content and theology of this first book of the Bible. Indeed almost every important church doctrine is found in “seed” form in the Book of Genesis. This volume covers the lives of the patriarchs Jacob and Joseph, ending with the Israelites living in Egypt.

In the Logos edition, this valuable volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Top Highlights

“The tribe of Simeon is the smallest tribe in the census of Israel during the wilderness wanderings (Num. 26:12–14). And they are soon swallowed up by the tribe of Judah (Josh. 19:1). The Levites, of course, receive no land inheritance (Josh. 18:7). Yet God redeems the Levites and calls them to serve the cultus of Israel for ‘The priesthood of Yahweh is their inheritance’ (Josh. 18:7). It is ironic that God would take such a violent and warlike tribal leader and then turn his descendants into the priestly tribe!” (Page 375)

“It is indeed fitting that the story of Joseph begins with hostility over clothing—his ornamental robe—and now reconciliation is symbolized by his gifts of clothing!” (Page 330)

“The point is that our sins will find us out. And there is only one remedy—forgiveness that comes through the person and work of Jesus Christ. It is only through his blood that anyone can be redeemed from sin.” (Page 294)

“It is interesting to note that Joseph is able to foresee the chief cupbearer’s day of deliverance, but he cannot predict his own time of release. He is called to be patient, and to rest on Yahweh and his timing. As George Müller once said, ‘You need never to take a step in the dark. If you do, you are sure to make a mistake. Wait, wait, wait till you have light. Remind the Lord Jesus that as He is counsellor to the Church of God, He will be in your particular case Counsellor and Guide, and will direct you. And if you patiently wait, expectantly wait, you will find that the waiting is not in vain, and that the Lord will prove Himself a Counsellor, both wise and good.’” (Page 243)
