This is Ken Ham, producer of the family-friendly Answers Bible Curriculum . . . now for homeschool!
Yesterday we learned that some people believe Genesis chapters one to eleven is just myth . . . and that the real history begins in Genesis twelve. But all throughout Genesis, we see a Hebrew verb that’s used to show that something is consecutive—following what just came before. And that verb is used to link Genesis eleven and Genesis twelve.
We also see a Hebrew phrase that we translate in English as “this is the book of the genealogy of”—it’s found eleven times throughout Genesis. Six times in Genesis one to eleven. And five more times in the rest of the book. It links it all together as history.
