The Reign of Death & the Hope of Life

Text: Genesis 5
Speaker: Brian Borgman
[Listen or Watch]

At first, Genesis 5 just looks like one of these tedious genealogies. If, however, we look more closely we see the mournful refrain “and he died” as the rhythmic reminder of the curse. But the refrain is interrupted twice, with Enoch and Noah, notes of salvation and hope. God will not just give up on the human race, rather He is the God of salvation and hope for His people.
