‘In the beginning’
Every good story has an end, but also, and equally important, it must have a beginning as well.
A beginning is definite, it shows us that things haven’t just happened by chance. Rather, there is a purpose and a plan, and what follows isn’t an accident.
And that’s exactly why the Bible begins in this way. ‘In the beginning’ is God’s way of grabbing our attention, to show us that what follows is His revelation.
