Genesis Series: The Overview of the Book of Genesis

The Book of Genesis contains several interesting accounts. There are two major divisions. The first division of Genesis is the Primeval History which is found in Genesis 1:1-11:26. The second division is the Patriarch History which is found from Genesis 11:26 to Genesis 50:26. The Purpose of Genesis is to show us how God laid the foundation to establish a Theocracy through the Nation of Israel.

The focus on the overview on Genesis will be on Noah and the rest of the Patriarchal Fathers and how they walked by faith and not by sight. The Patriarchal Fathers are Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (aka Israel), and Joseph.

Most conservative scholars agree that Moses penned the words found in the great book of beginnings. Moses penned the wonderful historical accounts of Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel, Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, Terah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebekah, Leah, Jacob, Rachel, and Joseph. Moses was very organized in writing this book. Moses always had a key phrase he used, “These are the generations (or accounts) of.”

Without God Speaking to Moses, the American society would not have the book of Genesis. Moses’ words were carried along by the Holy Spirit and divinely inspired by God.[1]The words of Moses were both plenary and verbal inspired. Plenary Inspiration means that Moses word is complete because it was God breathed. Verbal Inspiration means that Moses penmanship was given to Moses by the Spoken word of God. Thus, As Americans, due to sovereignty and inspiration of God, Americans shall not question the authenticity of God’s words, written by the hand of Moses, because Moses wrote the book of Genesis by the divine authority of God. So, Moses’ writings (which is consist of 5 books—known as the Torah) as long with rest of the 61 books is the final authority for life and practice. 61 plus 5 equals 66 books. So, all 66 books are completely and totally inspired by God.

Too often, young adults question the inspiration of the Bible. God’s Word is completely inspired, not partially inspired. Therefore, The Bible is the final authority for life and practice. Charles C. Ryrie has a good quote on Biblical Inspiration that was brought forth by Dr. Allan Henderson, who teaches Systematic Theology 1 at Calvary University. Biblical Inspiration is defined by Charles C. Ryrie, in his book “The Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms,” states,

One example of how society fail to view the Moses’ writings as divinely and completely inspired by God is through the concepts found behind Christian Postmodernism.

First, what is Christian Postmodernism and why is it a big deal to the overview of Genesis? Christian Postmodernism is defined by Dr. Jeff Myers, the president of Summit Ministries located in Manitou Springs, CO, as, “a hybrid worldview that incorporates elements of postmodern philosophy and Christian theology.”[2] The Christian Postmodernism promotes Destruction, Anti-Realism, and different view of what science is. Destruction is defined by Dr. Jeff Myers as “a method of literary analysis that questions the ability of language to represent reality adequately and seeks to discern and expose the purported underlying ideologies of a text.”[3] Anti-Realism defined by Dr. Jeff Myers with the lens cap of Postmodernism, as “the denial of the existence or accessibility of an objective reality”[4]. Science defined by Dr. Jeff Myers with the lens cap of Postmodernism, as “a form of coping rather than a reliable means of gaining knowledge.”[5] Another thing that Postmodernist promote according to Jeff Myers, “There is no human nature. There is only an ever-evolving, highly sexual social animal with multiple subjective interests crying for recognition and acceptance.”[6] This very important. Humans are created in the Image of God, not mere animals looking for social pleasures.

Here is a little background on Dr. Jeff Myers. Dr. Myers holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy and took over the Summit Ministries in 2012 when Strobel retired from Summit Ministries. Dr. Myers is not a postmodernist. Dr. Myers educates the young population, who are between the ages of 18 to 24, on how to Christianity is the one true religion and all the rest are fake religions out there to ensnare us. Dr. Myers also promotes that Truth and relationship combined can influence a person for the better and not for the worse. Myers holds to a conservative Christian worldview. He promotes the republican ideologies and tradition marriage.

The topic of Postmodernism is important because it is starting to creep into every aspect from Religion to politics. The Christian Postmodernist are trying to undermine the integrity of the 2020 election and the integrity of Genesis from the creation account to the flood account.

Christian Postmodernism (C.P.) undermines the whole creation account and deems it as a mythical account, not a historical fact. As cited in Dr. Werner Gitt book, Did God use Evolution?, H. Von Ditfurth contributes the idea that when the Genesis account is reduced to a nonliteral account, it promotes the concept of a mythical image and is reduced to superstitious thought which is one of the main targets of C.P. H. Von Ditfurth states:

‘The Literal meaning of the Mythical imagery with which theologians proclaim their message bears no relation to the contents of the message. They were not even valid 2,000 years ago, when these images came into existence as expression of a living faith…that was two millennia ago, so it does not hold for us anymore. The semantic “overtones” of the cultural matrix at the time of Christ’s birth have long since been forgotten. At that time, the mythical formulas were impressed on the philosophy and customs of the Judaic-Romans world. Today we only have skeleton, the bare framework of words and sentences, which fills us with respect and awe as an echo of the time when they originated. The real meaning and significance they once had have long since been lost…Where mythical statements are reduced to their bare literal meaning, it becomes superstitious.”[7]

This scholar asserts the idea that when we have mythical imagery like the creation account, it bears no relation to the content of the message and reduces it to superstitious thought and causes one to speculate if this is start of the C.P. Movement.

Dr. Bernett puts it other words: “Theistic evolution’s attempted conflation reduces the message to insignificant…[The] Scriptural events are reduced to mythical imagery, and an understanding of the message of the Bible as being true in the word and meaning is lost.”[8]

These scholars agree that when we have a nonliteral account, it rejects the notion that Bible is final authority for Life and practice. The People behind the Bible Information webpage, summed it up great, “If we dismiss the accuracy of the biblical creation account, we are free to dismiss other parts of Scripture and thus become the Judge of what is or isn’t true in spite of what Jesus and the Bible authors say”[9]

If society undermines the creation account through C.P, the whole foundation of Christianity is pierced and sink in a nonbiblical sinkhole because C.P. denies the necessity of why Jesus came to save us from our sin (Look up Romans 5:14 for reference purposes). It also crumbles the whole purpose of why Jesus Christ was sent the Earth to save us from our sin. Because if you deny the creation account, you also deny the Fall found in Genesis 1-3 and gives the C.P. movement ample motivation to continue with their fake ideology.

Due to this logic, one must believe in the Creation account because it is the foundation of all humanity and prophesies the coming of Jesus Christ who will crush the head of the serpent (Genesis 3:15). Therefore, this is one example of how Christian Postmodernism have crept into the societies’ interpretation of the book of Genesis and Genesis 1-3.

The Torah/Pentateuch confirms that Abraham, Isaac, Jacob are actual historical people and bear significance to the Gospel Story. Without Noah, a righteous blameless man before the eyes of God, humanity would not be here today. It was because of God’s Sovereign will that humankind is here to today. According to the Westminster Shorter Catechism, The Chief end goal of humanity is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. Also, the Westminster shorter catechism also mentioned that the chief end goal of God is to glorify himself and enjoy himself forever. Without Isaac, Jacob and Esau would not have been born, which inevitable would have not led to the creation of the twelve tribes of Israel (AKA Jacob). Why did God rename Abraham and Jacob? Jacob was renamed to Israel because He was the Father of the Twelve Tribes. And Abram was renamed to Abraham because he walked by faith and not by sight and that credited him righteous in the eyes of the LORD, who is the maker of everything, in heaven, and in the earth.

The New Testament confirms this perspective on Abraham. It is confirmed in Romans 9:1-25, Acts 7:1-8, Hebrews 11:8-12. However, this part will be mostly focused on Romans 9:1-5 and Hebrews 11:8-12. Romans 9:1-5 states, “I am [Paul is] speaking the truth in Christ—I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit—that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I, myself, were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen [Jews] according to the flesh. They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises. To them belong the patriarchs, and from their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ, who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen.”

These verses prove that Paul, who was from the Jewish heritage, believed the Patriarch truly lived and confirms the Genesis account of the Patriarch Leaders. Paul then furthered express how the seed of the Messiah came and how it was God’s sovereign choice to save mankind through the seed of Abraham who is none-other than the Messiah.

Also, the writer of Hebrews confirmed that the Patriarchs lived, who lived in Israel in the Genesis timeframe, is accurate. Hebrews 11:8-12 confirms this. Hebrews 11:8-12 states, “By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith, he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God. By Faith, Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past age, since she considered him faithful who had promised. Therefore, from one man, and him as good as dead, were born descendants as many as the stars of heaven and as many as the innumerable grains of sands by the seashore.” This account indicates that the Patriarchs and the fathers of the great nation of Israel.

Therefore, these two passages indicate that N.T confirms that the Patriarch are historical figures.

Now, that one has heard the foundations on the Historicity of the Book of Genesis and how this is divinely inspired, let’s shift the focus to the patriarchal fathers which is Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (AKA Israel), and Joseph. In this paper, there will be defense on why Noah is part of the patriarchal father list but is underappreciated in today’s world.

By God’s sovereign power and choice, Noah was the first Patriarch Father, who helped God’s mission of blessing the Nation of Israel through the life of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel, and Joseph. Joseph is considered a Patriarch because Joseph was the father of Tribe of Ephraim and Manasseh, but that will be addressed later in this narrative of the life of the Patriarchs which is the part of the whole overarching theme of the book of the Genesis. Genesis is the start of the formation of a Theocracy. Noah is considered a Patriarch because he wholly followed God, He did everything according to God’s sovereign commandments, He was blessed by God to create nations upon nations (sidenote: this lineage of Noah inevitably lead to the creation of the nation of Israel found in the historical account of Abraham, who is the father of the Jewish nation), He was part of the lineage of Jesus Christ, He was righteous before God (this inevitably lead to him going into the ark), and finally, he walked by Faith and not by sight like Abraham did (as one will see in the next section of this narrative of the life of the Patriarchs, which is found in the book of Genesis).

Noah is and still is a Patriarch because he wholly followed God and was blameless before Him. In the English Standard Translation of the Bible, Genesis 6:8 states, “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.” Ken Ham also agrees that Noah was a Patriarch.

Noah is and still is a Patriarch because He did everything according to God’s sovereign commandments. Genesis 6:22 and Genesis 7:5 confirm this. Genesis 6:22 states, “Thus, Noah did; according to all that the Lord commanded.” Genesis 7:5 states, “And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him.” Therefore, it is significant that Due to Noah obedience and following the Lord’s commandments by God’s Spoken word, we are here today, instead of being obliterated by God’s wrath and anger because God showed Noah favor in his eyes.

Noah is and still is a Patriarch because He was blessed by God to create nations upon nations. Genesis 9:1 state, “So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.”

Noah is and still is a Patriarch because He was part of the lineage of Jesus Christ. Luke 3:36 states, “The son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the Son of Lamech.” So, Noah is the father of the new generation of mankind. The Book of Genesis is filled with a whole bunch of new beginnings. He was the first rescuer of mankind that saved his species from utter destruction.

Noah is privileged to be a Patriarch because He was righteous before God to enter the ark. Genesis 7:1 is where God commanded Noah to come into the Ark because God’s Judgement was nearing with the wicked generation that lived in the time period of Noah. Genesis 7:1 state, “Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this Generation.” Genesis 7:7 shows that Noah and his family obeyed God’s commandment of coming into the Ark. Genesis 7:7 proclaims, “So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood.”

Noah is called a Patriarch because He walked by Faith and not by sight. He did not question God and the necessity of building the Ark. This would have taken great courage for Noah to do in face of the persecution he faced and the mockery that wicked people ensued on him.

Noah is also considered a Patriarch because He was featured in Hebrews 11 (AKA the Hall of Faith and 2 Peter. In Second Peter, it proclaimed the historicity of Noah. 2 Peter 2:4-10 states:

“For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood of the world of the ungodly; and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked. (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)—then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under the punishment for the day of judgment, and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak of evil of dignitaries, whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord.”[10]

This verse, in the full context, is addressing the false prophets, those who promote false ideas and heresies to the people. He was saying that Noah was not a false prophet, but a prophet. Noah was a prophet because He spoke the truth, but nobody heeded his warning (As seen in the book of Genesis). The people had 120 years, 120 years, to repent, but they never did—they never did. How sad is that nobody repented and turned to God except for Noah? Noah, who was a firm preacher of righteous and eight other people, was rescued by God because God saw favor among Noah’s family.

Therefore, Noah is called a Patriarch because without a shadow of doubt, he followed the commands that God set before him which lead him to be inducted in the Hall of Faith.

Abraham is the historical Patriarch that walked by faith, not by sight. Abraham is a Patriarch Leader for the following reasons. First, Abraham laid the groundwork for the God’s redemptive message. Second, Abraham walked by faith, not by sight as most Patriarch Fathers did.

First, Abraham laid the groundwork for the God’s redemptive message by God making a covenant with him. Assistant Professor of Bible Exposition Keith H. Essex proclaimed, “Genesis 12 is a pivotal statement of the covenant because it contains God’s first recorded speech to Abraham.”[11] This is so important because God made a covenant with Abraham just like God made the Messianic Covenant with people in the N.T. As cited in the Abrahamic Covenant by Keith H. Essex, Covenantalist John Murray proclaimed,

“It is this Abrahamic covenant, so explicitly set forth in Gn. xv and xvii, that underlies the whole subsequent development of God’s redemptive promise, word, and action…The redemptive grace of God in the highest and furthest reaches of its realization is the unfolding of the promise given to Abraham and therefore the unfolding of the Abrahamic covenant.”[12]

Therefore, John Murray indicates that God laid the framework of the gospel message in Genesis 12-50 through setting up the nation of Israel so that the Messiah can save us from our sin in the New Testament. Thus, Abraham is a Patriarch father because God through Abraham, set up the framework of the Gospel message.

Second, Abraham walked by Faith, not by sight. Jeremy Sweets, who is a writer of Truth Magazine, captured this truth so amazingly. Sweets proclaimed,

“Even at the mention of the biblical character Abraham, the attribute of faith clearly comes to mind. His life embodied the very essence of faithfulness and obedience to the Lord. 2 Corinthians say, ‘For we are to walk by faith, not by sight.’ Abraham’s life exemplifies the meaning of Paul’s charge to the Corinthians. In fact, Hebrews 11 lists Abraham among those men whose faith shines forth as a guiding light.”[13]

Therefore, Abraham walked by Faith, not by sight as demonstrated by Sweets article and by Scriptural references. Hebrews 11:8 is the primary scriptural references the fact that Abraham walked by Faith and not by sight. Abraham is one of the favorites among the Patriarch fathers.

These are the two primary reasons why Abraham is considered a Patriarch Father in the book of Genesis. The Book of Genesis is one of the most influential books contained in the Bible and Abraham is the most quoted O.T. patriarch father in the New Testament.

Abraham and Sarah bore a son in Sarah’s old age and called him, “Isaac.” God called Abraham to Sacrifice his son Isaac, but then changed his mind. Thereby, leading to the survival of Isaac. Russell Morton proclaimed,

“In Genesis 22, Abraham’s faith is tested when Isaac is offered on Mount Moriah. The story is a glorious example of God’s mercy, when God provides a lamb for sacrifice in place of Isaac, so that Abraham’s son may survive, and God’s promise can be fulfilled.”[14]

Therefore, this article indicates that God was merciful and carried the nation of Israel through the line of Isaac. For Isaac to carry the line of nation of Israel, He has to find a wife. God was faithful and provided a wife, named Rebekah, to be Isaac’s wife. This is the first reason why Isaac was a Patriarch Father.

Second, Isaac is considered a Patriarch father because Isaac was inducted in the Hall of Faith in Hebrews 11. Hebrews 11:20 (ESV) states, “By faith, Isaac invoked future blessings on Jacob and Esau.”[15] Without Isaac walking by faith, Isaac would not be pleasing to God. Hebrews 11:6 (ESV) states, “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would drew near to god must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”[16] Thus, Isaac fulfilled this requirement because he walked by faith according to God’s standard, not by sight. Therefore, Isaac is considered a Patriarch because Isaac was inducted in the hall of faith in Hebrews 11.

Thereby, these two reasons indicate that Isaac walked by faith, and not by sight. Also, Isaac carried the line of the nation of Israel which is quite astonishing.

At least 47% of Americans, as one can see with the polarized one-sided 2020 election results, would claim that the Biden-Harris Presidential ticket will lead to persecution of Christians. Although this might be an exaggeration, it illustrates the point that most Americans would feel like they are in intense persecution. One man stands out that suffered immensely and suffered persecution form his brothers. Despite this suffering, Joseph was blessed by God and was one of the Patriarch leaders. This leader is none-other than Joseph, the man with the coat of many colors and was Israel’s (Jacob’s) favorite son. His brothers were so jealous that they throw him in a pit and left him to die alone. After this, He was sold into slavery. He was also thrown in prison for the unlawful clam with Potiphar’s wife. But in all of these circumstances, God lead Joseph to help Egypt with a great famine. Pharaoh was not that great for the Egyptians, but he led the advisors to make a difference in Pharaoh’s life because Joseph interpreted a dream for Pharaoh.

Joseph is a Patriarch Leader for the following reasons. First, He was the first Patriarch to showcase that suffering can happen to good people. Second, He helped Egypt through the drought that occurred and led to a disease of famine. Third, He reunited with his Father and his brothers during the drought. Fourth, His Sons, Manasseh and Ephraim received a double portion and are considered half-tribes.

First, He was the first Patriarch to showcase that Suffering can happen to good people, but ultimately lead to good and prosperous things eventually. Genesis 50:20 confirms this truth. Genesis 50:20 (ESV) states, “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.” This is the landmark verse in Joseph’s life. Even though His brothers inflicted pain on Joseph, God ultimately turned Joseph into a good circumstance to save the lives of many people during the drought. Therefore, Joseph was the first Patriarch to showcase that suffering can happen to good people, but ultimately lead to good and prosperous things eventually if God’s hand is upon them.

Second, Joseph helped Egypt through a famine according to God’s sovereign plan. First, He was Chief Steward of Pharaoh because he interpreted Pharaoh’s dream that a famine will spread throughout Egypt.

One way, Joseph helped Egypt with the famine was his knowledge of Agriculture. Charles F. Aling wrote an article entitled, “Joseph in Egypt,” which was published in Bible and Spade Journal in the Spring of 2003. Aling wrote:

“The main job of the Chief Steward was the detailed supervision of the King’s personal agricultural estates, the number of which would have been vast. This fits well with Joseph’s advice regarding the coming years of plenty and the following years of famine. As Chief Steward, Joseph would be well placed to prepare for the coming famine during the years of more abundant production.”[17]

From this Chief Steward position, Joseph learned how God would use him in days and years to come. Aling also wrote, “First, note how God had prepared him for the task.”[18] God prepared him to help the Pharaoh during this trying time that the Egyptians had to face. Therefore, God prepared him in a place of leadership to inflict change in the life of Pharaoh.

Second, Joseph was the shepherd that cared for the God’s chosen flock. Aling wrote, “As a chief Steward of the King, Joseph was perfectly placed to care for God’s Chosen people during the famine.”[19] This is so true. Therefore, by Aling’s article and the biblical account of Joseph, God called him to be a Patriarch because He helped Egypt with their famine.

Third, Joseph reunited with this Brothers and Father after a series of exchanges and interesting circumstances.

The first interesting circumstance is the circumstance by which Jacob called his 11 sons to go down to Egypt. Once they got down to Egypt, they went to the Pharaoh’s second main person in command, who is Joseph. Joseph recognized them, but they did not recognize him. This led him to play a game with his brothers which led His brothers to be in prison for three days. This circumstance showcased that the Brothers were honest and has changed their way from how they acted in the past.

The second interesting circumstance is the circumstance by which Joseph called Jacob to send his youngest son, Benjamin, down to Egypt. Jacob was distraught at the fact that the Second main person in command would request such a thing. But their food ultimately ran down, and they had to go to Egypt. So, the Brothers reminded their Father of the predicament they are in. Ultimately, they finally went down and brought Benjamin down to Egypt. Joseph had another trial for them, and they passed. They finally got reunited and lived in Egypt with Joseph.

Therefore, by these two circumstances, Joseph was reunited with his brothers after a series of exchanges and interesting circumstances. The two circumstances were Jacob called his 11 sons to go down to Egypt and Joseph calling Jacob to send his youngest son to Egypt who was none other than Benjamin. Also, Jacob blessed Joseph’s sons, Ephraim, and Manasseh, with a double portion that lead to the fruition of the Nation of Israel.

Conclusion

As one can see in this narrative, there are two major divisions of the book of Genesis. The Primeval History is recorded in Genesis 1:1 through Genesis 11:26. The Patriarchal History is recorded in Genesis 11:26 to Genesis 50:26. In this paper, one learned that N.T. confirmed the Patriarchs. One also learned how Noah was a Patriarch too. Genesis is truly the story of how the nation of Israel got founded and led to a great redeemer that saved us from our sin.
