Below you will find the full outline of the Genesis course. You can start the course exactly as you would in the actual course—read the descriptions, watch the videos, and interact with the discussion questions. For the first two sessions, the only difference is that in the actual course you would be able to interact with other people from around the world or from your local church.

FREE TRIAL BELOW – After the first two sessions, you will be able to see the outline for the remaining sessions, but you’ll need to sign up for the actual course to continue.

Course Description

This course is designed to help you understand the book of Genesis. Genesis gives us the foundation for understanding the rest of the Bible. It also explains the world we live in, the God who made it, and his reasons for making us and placing us on this earth. The course will help you understand the storyline of the book of Genesis, alert you to key themes in the book, and prepare you for a lifetime of study in this rich book.

About the Instructor

This course is taught by Josh Grauman. Josh grew up with a love for everything electrical. In college, God changed Josh’s passions and so after finishing his master’s degree in engineering, he came to Southern California to get his M.Div. Josh has been serving as a pastor since 2003 and teaching at Eternity Bible College since 2005. The biggest blessing came in 2004 in marrying Melody, who loves caring for people in the neighborhood, including their two beautiful daughters and their foster children. Currently, Josh is excited to be church planting in South LA, caring for the lowly and showing them the hope of the gospel. Josh also loves robotics, programming (Bible software), languages (Hebrew, Greek, and Spanish), and studying and teaching through as many books of the Bible as he is able.
