Genesis challenges the nations surrounding Israel to a different view of the world. For example, God has no genealogy, unlike gods of surrounding nations. The two great lights are so described because the words sun and moon referred to regional deities.

Genesis is pregnant with meaning and challenges to both the ancient world and the world today. Here are the foundational themes of the Christian faith: Gods mercy- human dignity and purpose- Gods mission to heal the nations.
