We are going to be spending these two weeks on this first part of Genesis because there is a lot to take in. This week we focus on Covenant, and how we know for sure that God is in a Covenant with Adam and Eve. There are a number of reasons outlined in the video, beginning with the most prevalent: Adam is an adopted son of God. Remember Covenant = kinship by oath. Adam is certainly made a part of God's family in this first part of Genesis by nature of how he is made. He is created by the dust, so he is a creature; and he is made in God's likeness and image, which denotes sonship.

Introduction to Genesis
This week we dipped our toe into Genesis to get things rolling. As in the past, we are keeping our gaze fixed on Jesus and how the Old Testament relates directly to him. Also, COVENANTS! Covenants are oaths of kinship and there are 7 big ones between God and humans throughout the Bible. The key to understanding the narrative of the Bible is through the Covenants which begins with Adam.
