This episode of the One Verse Podcast provides a short summary of Genesis 4. This helps you get up to speed in this Podcast if you have missed most of the studies of Genesis 4. There are similar summary episodes for Genesis 1, 2, and 3 as well.
Of course, in today’s episode, we don’t look only at Genesis 4, but also look at the flood account in Genesis 6–8, and a verse or two out of Genesis 50. Doing so shows us what Genesis is all about. This is important, since Genesis is the introduction to the Bible.
If you want to understand Genesis and the Bible as a whole, make sure you listen to today’s One Verse Podcast.
In this discussion of Genesis 4 we look at:
- A summary of how sin and scapegoating leads to civilization
- A look ahead to Genesis 6–11 and the rest of Scripture
- How the book of Genesis ends the way it begins, showing us the overall message of the book of Genesis
- The alternative to violence which God reveals in Genesis, Scripture, and ultimately, in Jesus Christ

Can’t wait to listen to this episode! A book about Scripture and Civilization – ‘The Good Book of Human Nature’ – has been blowing my mind: http://amzn.to/2hepqKr
Jeremy Myers says
Hm. That book looks good. What is the basic idea?

Interesting. Are you familiar with Rene Girard’s book, The Scapegoat?
On another note, you may find really insightful interpretation of Genesis in rabbinical sources. But I still have difficulty to see how you liberate scripture from religion (which religion? Christianity? Islam?) with this interpretation because your assumptions are not really that different from Christian (religious) assumptions.
Are you assuming that scripture can function as scripture aside from any religious belief?

Thank you! Just enjoying your podcast. It is joy to my soul! I thank God for you, and the many others that are rescuing us from the old, boring religion. I just knew something was wrong with it, now I see
better, and he is living water. God is not Violent, we are. We are the ones that paint our face on him. However, God is revealing himself in a clearer way and I love him more. My love for him is moving from the intellect to the heart. As I grow in love for him, I grow in love for all people.
