The Book of Genesis, as the first Book in the Holy Bible, is considered as the living prelude to understanding the word of God.
It gave us the broad lines that were manifested and realized in the Books to follow.
In the Book of Genesis, as God reveals His love for man through creation, He continues to talk about His love by renewing creation, until the new earth and the new heaven appear in the Book of Revelation.
In the Book of Genesis, God promised Abraham that his children will inherit the kingdom of heaven.
And, in the New Testament, the kingdom was revealed in the children of Abraham...
We can say with St. Augustine: [In the New Testament alone the Old Testament is clear, the New Testament is concealed in the Old.]
In the Book of Genesis we touch the Person of the Lord Christ as the Savior, revealed through clear prophecies and numerous symbols.
Christ the Lord remains as the center of the Books, to see Him “He is Himself, yesterday, today, and till eternity.”
He came to save the sinners, and to promise His Ultimate Coming to gather us to His glory as His holy bride.
