Genesis Matters:
Five Moments in Genesis that Anticipate
Jesus Christ and Why Every Christian Should Know Them

Thursday, February 22:
"The History Before History" 
The first eleven chapters of Genesis include Creation, The Flood, and the Tower of Babel and are considered "pre-history" because we have no way of knowing when these events took place in time. All three stories involve specific themes that are realized in the flesh in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. Come see how these early stories play out in the life and ministry of Jesus.
