Come Into the Ark (5 of 34)
I want to read some very unusual verses for you beginning in Genesis 6. These are strange verses. These are verses which call out for some understanding and interpretation.
There are two main sections to the book of Genesis. The first eleven chapters have to do with the history of the human race. The remainder of the book has to do with the history of the Hebrew race. In the first 11 chapters there are four great historical events which are given to us. There is first of all the creation, chapters 1 and 2. Secondly, there is the fall, chapters 3 through 5.
