  1. 1. GENESIS
  2. 2. I. INTRODUCTION TO THE BOOK OF GENESIS AUTHOR: MOSES DATE: 1450-1410 B.C. Title The English word genesis comes, by way of Latin, from the Greek title to this book. In Hebrew, the book was named from its first word, which means “in the beginning.” Genesis means “origin” and thus is an apt title for a book that reveals the origins of all human history. Authorship Genesis is the first book of a larger work, the first five books of de O.T., called the Pentateuch, the authorship of which has traditionally been ascribed to Moses. This is supported by the following considerations: (1) the Pentateuch itself affirms Moses as its author (Ex. 17:14; 24:4,7; 34:27; Num. 33:1-2; Deut. 31:9); (2) other O.T. books testify to the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch (Josh. 1:7-8; 8:32,34; 22:5 1 Kings 2:3; 2 Kings 14:6; 21:8; Ezra 6:18; Dan. 9:11-13; Mal. 4:4); (3) the N.T. affirms the same (Matt. 19:8; Mark 12:26; John 5:45-47; 7:19; Rom. 10:5); (4) eyewitness details point to a participant being the author, not an editor who lived centuries later (Ex. 15:27; Num. 2:1-31; 1:7-8); (5) the author’s information about Egyptian names, words, customs, and geography would have been difficult for an author or editor to have obtained in Canaan centuries after Moses’ time (Gen. 13:10; 16:1-3; 33:18; 41:43; cf Acts 7:22). The critical view of the authorship of the Pentateuch has passed through several stages. At first, Genesis was divided into two documents on the basis of the use of the two different names for God: Elohim and Yahweh. About 1875, Julius Wellhausen argued for four documents from which the entire Pentateuch was compiled. These were: J, writhe about 850 B.C. by an unknown writer in Judah; E, written about 750 B.C. by an unknown writer in the Northern Kingdom of Israel; D, composed by a high priest at the time of the revival under King Josiah in 621 B.C.; and P, composed from the time of Ezekiel to Ezra. Archaeological discoveries, however, many since World War I, have demonstrated the historical accuracy of the Pentateuch and have brought to light customs practice in the second millennium B.C. that were no practiced in the first millennium B.C. How, then, would an author have known of these customs (e.g., the double portion going to the oldest son, the sale of a birthright, the validity of an oral will; cf. Gen 48:17-20) unless he had lived during that earlier period? Undoubtedly, Moses had both oral and written records of early history, which he used under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to write about events that antedated his own life. Naturally, someone else must have written the account of his death (Deut. 34).
  3. 3. Contents Genesis is a real life history of individual people, a fact that is emphasized by the ten sections (following the prologue, 1:1- 2:3) that usually begin “these are the records of the generations of” (6:9; 10:1; 11:10; 11:27; 25:12; 25:19; 36:1; 37:2; cf. 2:4; 5:1). This thrust provides a natural unity to the book (cf. Luke 3:23-38). Genesis is a book about the beginning of many things: the world, man, sin, civilization, the nations, and Israel. Genesis also contains important theological themes: the doctrine of the living, personal God; the doctrine of man made in the image of God, then of sinful man; the anticipation of a Redeemer (3:15); and the covenant promises made to the nation Israel (12:1-3; 15:18-21). Genesis is a book unique among all Near Eastern literature and foundational to all the other books of the Bible.
