Parents and children on the first pages of the Bible (Gen 1 - 12)
Keywords:parents, children, upbringing, God, faith, Gospel Books, biblical narratives
The first pages of the Bible provide no example of children’s upbringing since the first people, Adam and Eve, are presented as young but adult people. However, the first human couple is predestined for procreation and rearing of offspring. This paper examines the relationships between parents and children, starting from Adam and Eve and their sons up to Abraham and his children. The analysis of their relationships is based on the early chapters of Genesis 1 - 22.
