The Book of GenesisThe Book of Genesis , [a] the first book of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament ,  is Judaism's account of the creation of the world and the origins of the Jewish people. It is divisible into two parts, the primeval history chapters 1—11 and the ancestral history chapters 12— Jacob's name is changed to Israel, and through the agency of his son Joseph , the children of Israel descend into Egypt, 70 people in all with their households, and God promises them a future of greatness. Genesis ends with Israel in Egypt, ready for the coming of Moses and the Exodus. The narrative is punctuated by a series of covenants with God , successively narrowing in scope from all mankind the covenant with Noah to a special relationship with one people alone Abraham and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob. In Judaism , the theological importance of Genesis centers on the covenants linking God to his chosen people and the people to the Promised Land. Christianity has interpreted Genesis as the prefiguration of certain cardinal Christian beliefs, primarily the need for salvation the hope or assurance of all Christians and the redemptive act of Christ on the Cross as the fulfillment of covenant promises as the Son of God.
