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.
