Genesis is the first book of the Law and also the first book of the entire Bible. The name Genesis literally means “In the Beginning”.It explains the actual events of one of the most debated subjects of our current day...the origin of life. Genesis describes the Lord God, who is infinite and all-powerful, creating everything that exists, by the power of His spoken Word, out of nothing. He essentially creates material matter out of nonmaterial nothing. by Jay Smith
