There is a great deal of “bible study” and emphasis upon “the bible” these days in the conciliar church, especially as represented by EWTN and its “Religious Catalogue” offerings. But I do not hear much about the book of Genesis or the seven deutoro-canonical books (Tobias, Judith, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus/Sirach, Baruch and 1 & 2 Machabees). Do all the new Catholic bibles contain all the Catholic books? Or do they omit or downgrade Genesis - just as the New Mass omits the prayer – Supra Quae Propitio, which retains the intrinsic connection between Abel, Abraham and Melchisedech? Genesis is foundational not only for giving us the Divine Revelation of exactly how God created all things in Six literal Days and the first Week of the world, but also for showing us how marriage, as willed by God, is central to the entire natural order, containing the Ten Commandments as natural law implicitly.
An analysis of Genesis 1-3 shows this clearly and Genesis 1-11 even more clearly. But there are exactly those parts of Genesis that the modernist conciliar church omits altogether in its bible study textbooks! But everything presupposes Creation - just as revealed in Genesis. This fact must be emphasized if the Catholic tradition is to be preserved.
