Genesis Study Part 2, episode 8.
In this episode, we take a close look at the descriptions of humans in Genesis 1-3. How and why were the humans made? What tasks and purposes were they made for? How are male and female related to one another? Is there a hierarchy of men over women? What is the state of everything before the humans disobey God? And, of course, how does all of this relate to the Genuine Life today?
