In this episode, we continue our journey through the story of scripture with the launching of God’s rescue operation. Genesis 1-11 paints a picture of the world that is quite familiar to us, a picture that includes both stunning beauty and terrible brokenness. God had created the first humans with the purpose to care for and cultivate God’s good world. Through the corruption of sin, humanity is just as liable to create horrific evil. 

God does not leave humans to wander in this broken state. Instead, God chooses one man, Abraham, as the instrument through whom God will restore and heal the nations. 

Of course, we soon find Abraham is a broken instrument...
