Genesis Study

There aren’t many books older.

It is a large book. It is an old book. It is a translated book. It is a dense book. This study is no small project.

To the extent I have a plan for a Book of Genesis study (I am not ruling out a separate in-depth blog study of the band with the same name) it goes like this: I am taking this one chapter verse at a time. When the book provides a clear time period or character focus transition, I will do a recap and review section. This is all subject to change. I will keep you, uh, posted. If I come across something later in the book that I think will be additive to an earlier post, I will go back and update the earlier post.

You will find herein a look at Hebrew-to-English translations using Strong’s Dictionary notes. I will also rely on notes from Commentaries and other sources. I will of course also provide my own thoughts.

I want to point out that I am also not writing to advocate a particular viewpoint so much as I am blogging to better inform myself of the variety of views that exist. Most of the writing and thought on this book has been done by Jews and Christians so you should expect that I will lean most heavily in those directions for outside thought. However, if it comes up, I will not shy away from interjecting and evaluating fringe views into my notes. DISCUSSION IS NOT ENDORSEMENT! The plan with going so slowly in this study is to cover the most possible ground. That said, there is no way I will be able to mention everything that might be relevant with every post. If I do not include something that you feel is important or relevant to the verses, please let me know.

NOTE: Helpful comments and discussion is encouraged. Argumentative comments will be ignored or deleted.
