The Gospel, Grounded in Genesis


Part 5



This is Ken Ham, and our popular Creation Museum is located in Northern Kentucky.


Many Christians treat Genesis as if it’s just a secondary book of the Bible. But it’s not! It’s foundational! The gospel itself is grounded in a literal Genesis.

Jesus came and died for our sins … and then he rose again. That’s the gospel message and the core of Christianity. But why did Jesus need to come and die a physical death on the cross?

Well, it goes back to Genesis. God’s original creation was perfect—there was no death in it. God told Adam that if he disobeyed God, he would die. Death is the penalty for sin.

That’s why Jesus had to die a physical death. Without a literal Genesis, the gospel has no foundation.
