Overview

In the book of Genesis, essential church doctrine is found in “seed” form. Creation, the fall, redemption, the doctrine of the Trinity, the promise of the Messiah, the establishment of the covenant, and the hope of the resurrection all begin here. The seed planted in Genesis sprouts and grows throughout the rest of the Bible until it finds its fruition in the person and work of Jesus Christ. In these commentaries on Genesis, Dr. John Currid helps readers discover this seed, providing solid, accessible exegesis matched with practical applications for the twenty-first century. Volume one covers creation to the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah. Volume two begins with the lives of Jacob and Joseph and ends with the Israelites living in Egypt.

Genesis is a book about beginnings—the creation of the universe, the formation of mankind, the establishment of the covenant, and the founding of the people of Israel. Many Christians regard the Old Testament as merely a collection of interesting stories to be taught in Sunday school, but which have little application for the church today except as providing examples or illustrations from a bygone, almost barbarous, age.

The truth is that almost every important church doctrine is found in “seed” form in the book of Genesis—creation, fall, redemption, the doctrine of the Trinity, the promise of the Messiah, the establishment of the covenant, and the hope of the resurrection are all to be found here. A “seed” is planted in Genesis and then it sprouts and grows throughout the rest of the Bible until it finds its fruition in the person and work of Jesus Christ. God created the universe; it fell through the sin of humanity; and now God is in the process of redeeming it through the work of Christ. This latter work continues even now until the time of the end when all things will be put in their final place.

Dr. Currid provides solid exegesis in an accessible way, matched with practical application that displays the relevance of this Old Testament book for the twenty-first century. This volume covers the period from the creation up to the death of Abraham and the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah.

Sufficiently scholarly to give [them] credence in the academic world, but at the same time . . . sufficiently straightforward to make [them] accessible to any serious student of the Bible.

Greatly to be welcomed is the writer who can combine scholarly, accurate fidelity to the text, while maintaining a readable and easily accessible style. But such we have here. Dr. Currid’s commentary is a very welcome addition to this series.

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.
