Genesis, Books 4,5&6
(6:9 through 11:26)

The Structure of the Apocalypse (Genesis 6:9-22)

God shares with his last remaining son on earth that a judgement of epic proportions is coming. This revelation produces a structure, and this structure is designed to make room for life.

Without a center, mankind breaks up and scatters. Moses posts an informational video tracing the migration of all the different people groups.

The City of Man (Genesis 11:1-9)

Some people travel eastward, and set up their own city, their own sacred mountain, their own religion, centered around themselves. And it works great! — until God actually shows up.

The Family of God (Genesis 11:10-26)

While Ham’s corrupt city falls apart under God’s judgement, one family is called out of the confusion and set on the road to a new city.
