- n. [capitalized] The first book of the Old Testament. It records the creation of the world, the flood and the ensuing dispersion of races, and a more detailed history of the families of the Hebrew patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The traditional and still widely prevalent view ascribes the authorship to Moses. Many modern scholars, however, find strong evidences of various periods of authorship, and particularly of two chief sources, the so-called Jehovistic and Elohistic. According to the latter view, the dates of composition fall chiefly within the period of the kingdoms of Judah and Israel (about the eighth century b. c.), the last redaction occurring perhaps after the return from Babylon. In Hebrew the book is designated by its first word, B′ reshith, ‘In the beginning’; the title Genesis was supplied in the early Greek translation. Abbreviated Gen. See
