This aspect has made Christians of different generations think up means by which they elucidate the work of creation from a Biblical perspective.

...Genesis 37-50: The Story of Joseph The Purpose of the Joseph Story The purpose of the Joseph Story could be understood in three different frameworks: (1) the Book of Genesis, (2) the Pentateuch, and (3) the Old Testament.
