The Primeval History
Genesis 1–11 contains some of the most familiar stories in the Bible. The creation week, Adam and Eve, the Garden of Eden, Noah's ark, the Tower of Babel — Christians know these stories well. But how many believers know what Moses intended these stories to teach?
In its ancient context, this primeval history was not a simple historical record. Rather, it was a forceful argument condemning Egypt and encouraging Israel to follow Moses to the Promised Land.
