Genesis reflects the New Testament

A brilliant quote from Derek Kidner.

"Genesis, in fact, is in various ways almost nearer to the New Testament than the Old, and some of its topics are barely heard again till their implicatios can fully emerge in the Gospel. The institution of marriage, the fall of man, the jealousy of Cain, the judgement of the Flood, the imputed righteousness of the believer, the rival sons of promise and of the flesh, the profanity of Esau, the pilgrim status of Gods people are all predominantly New Testament themes."
