About these stories
This book has stories from the 1st book in the Holy Bible, called Genesis. That word Genesis means start. It is the book that tells us how God started everything that is here today.
We have only translated the first 22 chapters of Genesis in this Mini-Bible. These chapters tell us what happened from the time when God started to make everything, until the time when a man called Abraham was alive. We have not yet translated the other 28 chapters. They are about Abraham’s kids and grand-kids.
Genesis was in God’s book that the Jewish people had before Jesus came to this earth. That book is now the first part of the Holy Bible, called the Old Testament.
Genesis is a very old book. The Jewish people say that Moses wrote it about 3,400 years ago. He was their leader at that time. But Genesis is a very important book for us today. It tells us that God made people, and everything else. And it tells us that people went wrong. But it also shows us that God will look after the people that want to be his friends and do what he says.
