Genesis 1–11 contains some of the most familiar stories in the Bible. In its ancient context, this collection was not a simple historical record. Rather, it was a forceful argument condemning Egypt and encouraging Israel to follow Moses to the Promised Land. This course provides an analysis of Genesis 1:1-11:9, looking at the background, the literary structure, the original meaning, the theological purpose, and modern applications. This course is based on the lecture series, The Primeval History, produced by Third Millennium Ministries and presented by Dr. Richard L. Pratt, Jr.
