All Christians know that the book of Genesis is the first book in the Bible and the book of Revelation is the last. Many too have heard Genesis being referred to as the seed plot of the Bible and as the book of beginnings. Most are aware, as well, that Revelation is the grand finale, the book in which all is concluded prior to the ushering in of the eternal day. Perhaps some too have a vague idea that in some way the first book is linked to the last book. A brief comparison of these two books will help the reader to appreciate the distinct links between them, and at the same time I trust, deepen his faith in the inspiration of the Holy Scriptures.
These are just a few of the many links that exist between these two inspired writings. There are more, but these suffice to show that it is the same God that caused Revelation to be written as caused Genesis to be penned. God’s Word is not a disjointed collection of unrelated books but one whole. May it be our portion to increasingly value and cherish these writings from the Divine hand!
