Western civilization began in Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome in 800 BC. It also includes Ancient Israel and Christianity. For that reason, we will begin our study with the beginning as told in Genesis. At this time, we are not going to look into about controversial details that we don’t understand, but just read the text it is. My favorite source is the New King James Bible, which can be accessed through Bible Gateway. We are also going to use Read Scripture, from The Bible Project.
