In the beginning… That is what Genesis means source  or birth the beginning of creation and ends with  death “in a coffin in egypt. we learn in the first 11 chapters about the

creation- Chapter one and two

the fall of man- Chapter Three and Four

the flood-Chapter 5 to 9

Babel crisis -Chapter 10 and 11

It also records the first prophecy by predicting the birth of our Redeemer in Gen 3:15,and in other verses thru Seth, Shem,Abraham,Issac,Jacob,and the tribe of Judah. Including David later on.

The rest of the 39 chapters we learn about the four great men,

Abraham : Chapter 12 to 23 The faithful one Through obedience and sacrifice of Issac.God made 7 covenants to Abraham. I will make Thee great Nation, I will Bless Thee,I will make Thy name great,Thou shalt be a blessing, I will bless them that bless thee, I will curse them that curse thee, In thee that all the families of the earth be blessed.

 Abraham’s  son Ismael was born to Sarah`s maid  because of her request Galatians: 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bond maid, the other by a free woman. 23. But he who was of the bonds woman was born after the flesh; but he of the free woman was by promise. Ismael`s descendants  are as far as I know are whom we call Islam. Genesis 16:11,12 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction.And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

Issac: Chapter 23-25  The son of Promise,  beloved  and obedient.  Father of Esau and Jacob two nations in the womb of Rachel.

 Jacob: Chapter 27-36 who God named  later as Israel, Through Jacob Abraham’s covenant was confirmed with 12 children which later became the  twelve tribes of Israel.

Joseph: Chapter 37-50 who suffered and came out Victoriously in Glory. Joseph was the favorite son, he is the fore- shadow of Jesus, both were shepherds, moved to Egypt, both were sold for a price of a slave and both suffered and later exalted.
