The book of Genesis is the first book of the Old Testament, and of Moses. It deals with the story of creation, and with how God formed nature and animals as well as Adam and Eve. It also tells the story of Noah and his ark, which he built for humans and animals so they might escape the Flood. There is also the Tower of Babel, in which humanity wanted to build a tower that reached into the heavens in order to set themselves in God’s place. As a result, God scattered them over the world and confused their languages. Of course, the stories of Abraham and his wife Sarah are also represented, how Lot’s wife turned into a column of salt, how the 12 tribes of Israel arose, and how Joseph prophesied 7 fat and 7 lean years to the Pharaoh, saving Egypt from a famine.
