Through a series of historically based parables, the book of Beginnings establishes how the connection was made between God and evolutionary humans with the advent of the first two dispensations.



Wherefore, be strong in the Lord your God,

and fear not the might of the oppressor,

for your God is greater than the fury of the ungodly,

and his mercy towards you is from everlasting to everlasting.

Beginnings 17:50
