Genesis is divided into twelve different generations, twelve epochs of variable lengths. Each epoch is full of abundant spiritual lessons. God reveals His character through His names. Therefore, fourteen different names of God in Genesis are translated from Hebrew into English. This commentary is written from the perspective of a medical doctor. There are many medical insights to be gained from Genesis on human sexuality, the menses, aging and its physical and psychological processes, the dying process, and the care of the dying patient and his/her family. The account of the creation in Genesis, and from other parts of the Bible, is compared to current scientific theories. Difficult texts from Genesis are elucidated by a review of the original text in Hebrew and in Greek for selected New Testament passages. The Biblical Timelines are traced from the time of Adam until the birth of the Christ.
