GENESIS - IN THE BEGINNING. THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME. BY FABIÁN MASSA

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.


The name Genesis comes from the Greek Γένεσις, and means origin, beginning and was named in the LXX [1]. It is the first of the books of the Pentateuch [2] or Torah (the Law). The transliterated Hebrew name is Bereshit, meaning In the beginning, since it is an oriental custom to call the books by their first words. Both the Greek name and the Hebrew correctly suggest the content of it. Genesis has a magnetism that inevitably catches the reader, is the first book of the Bible and it tells the origin of all things, how God made the heavens and the earth is to say everything that exists, implying that God is Prior to Creation [3]. This book can be divided into two parts:

I. Chapter 1 to 11, from the Origin of Everything to the Dispersion to Nations.

II. Chapter 12 to 50, the entire Patriarchal Age


The theme of the book "FROM EDEN TO THE NATIONS" is from chapters 1 to 11. Although this section is less extensive than the second, it is very important given the embryonic foundations of the most transcendent biblical themes, such as the two accounts Of Creation, the fall of humanity, the first murder, when the sons of God took the daughters of men and the two accounts of the Flood.

All these topics are developed in DE EDEN A LAS NACIONES.

[1] LXX (Seventy in Roman numerals) is one of the ways of calling the Septuagint, is a translation of the Hebrew and Aramaic texts into Greek. It was named because Ptolemy II, the Greek monarch of Egypt and founder of the Library of Alexandria, entrusted to a group of 70 (72 according to the Greek version) sages the translation of the Scriptures, being older than the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible. It was the Bible used by the Jews in the Diaspora (the dispersion) and also of the early Christians.
[2] Pentateuch, from the Greek penta, five and teuco - roll or case / box, because the five Books of the Law or Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) were kept in boxes for preservation.
[3] It is an important point, God is prior to creation, is Increased, Eternal and Almighty. God Is Who He Is, that is, the essence of Being that gives the ability to be or to exist to everything. In the parallel accounts of the Mesopotamian cultures and the great religions of antiquity, their gods have an origin, a birth, that is, necessarily have a principle of existence and therefore are subject to time. In Change The Lord is Eternal and the beginning of all Creation.
