In this major thematic work, senior scholar Paul Minear examines the Genesis motifs that are echoed in numerous parts of the New Testament. By doing so, Minear links the story of the old creation with the story of the new creation as he examines the language of beginningscreation, fall, and cursefound in both testaments. Minear concludes that there is a need to reexamine the legacy of the old creation in order to understand and value the gift of the new creation.
