B'reisheet "In the beginning"
The scroll of the Torah is the oldest and most sacred of all Israel's
Scriptures. It contains five books. The Hebrew name for the first one
is B'reisheet. It is also the first word of the book in the Hebrew
text, as well as the name for the first parasha (the first week's
reading). B'reisheet means "in the beginning."
The English name Genesis comes from the Septuagint (LXX), the Greek
translation of the Hebrew Bible. Genesis means "origins." Therefore,
the Greek name for the first book of the Bible means "The Book of
Genesis describes the origins of everything. It begins with the origins
of the universe, focuses on the origins of man and then explores the
origins of the nation of Israel.
As we study the first week's reading from the book of Genesis, we will
learn a great deal about God, but even more about ourselves. After all,
this is the story of our origins. When properly understood, the story
of our origin helps us find our destination.
