As we make our way through this study of the Book of Genesis, we are observing and inspecting historical facts and points of interest that God deemed necessary for everyone to know.
It’s safe to assume Moses wrote the Book of Genesis as well as the rest of the Pentateuch so that all of mankind throughout the ages would have record of creation and the Mosaic Law.
But maybe Moses wasn’t projecting that far ahead.
After more than 400 years, the enslaved Israelites may have completely lost all vestiges of their own history, and so, Moses sets about to inform and educate them about who they are and from whence they came.
Additionally, in the five Books of Moses, beginning early on, we can see prophecies that point to Jesus Christ which lead up to the literal advent of Jesus in the New Testament.
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.
We will follow that prophetic thread throughout the Old Testament.
