We analyse chapters 12-17 of the Book of Genesis in the bible and, it’s just a whole lot of Abram/Abraham.
We cover the events of Noah’s Ark and the Great Flood, all the way up to the Tower of Babel and Abram and Sarai leaving for Canaan.
I begin my journey through the English Standard Version bible with Genesis Chapters 1 to 5. In this we find out how the universe was created, how animals were created, how humans were created, why humans are rubbish, why God is worse and how it all starts going horribly wrong because of God’s lack of foresight.
A brief introduction to the bible, the history of its different versions, the composition of the testaments and why I think studying religious texts, particularly ones as important in human culture as the Christian Bible is an important exercise, even for atheists like me!
