Overview

First Words: Genesis 1-2:7 is a verse-by-verse study of Genesis 1-2:7, highlighting the historical context, Rabbinical and Evangelical interpretations of the text, while unlocking the meaning of certain Hebrew words.


""What makes this book of great value for the Christian interpreter is the fact that Dr. Johnson not only examines and explains the text from the Christian perspective, he also helps the reader understand how the Jewish rabbis for many centuries have explained these first words of their sacred text. Johnson draws on his rich background in Hebrew, Aramaic, Targums, and Christian theology to explain the text.""
--Dick Dahlquist, retired professor of Bible and Pastoral Studies, current adjunct professor of On-Line Bible, Grace University, Omaha, NE

""An insightful commentary, enabling readers to better understand Scripture, better appreciate the culture and context from which it emerged, and to better see Jesus--the One to whom the Scripture points.""
--Jeffrey L. Seif, University Distinguished Professor of Bible and Jewish Studies, Kings University

""Dr. Johnson has skillfully crafted a work of theological soundness and exegetical insight. Viewing the biblical text through the lens of Rabbinical teachings, cultural nuance, and grammatical insight, the reader is invited to a revived love and devotion for our Creator and Redeemer. Teachers and students of the Word will find this exposition extremely user-friendly in the classroom and in personal study.""
--J.B. Baldridge, Bible Professor, Arlington Baptist College; Minister of Education, Pleasantview Baptist Church, Arlington, Texas

""A great companion piece to the Bible and other commentaries I have.""
--Steve Elwart, Executive Research Analyst, Koinonia Institute
