The primeval history, which contains the first eleven chapters, that involves the story of general creation and revelation of God, and the patriarchal history that mainly includes the three important patriarchs which consists of chapters twelve to fifty. The Book of Genesis proposes a share of thematically reoccurring narratives such as creation, protection, and blessing with themes such as power, humanity, obedience, relationships, family feuds, mortality, sin, faith and loyalty. Genesis’ primeval history chapters, open with the Creation account that starts with, Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”, and probably one of the most famous phrases in world literature. The six days of Creation is a narrative theme of creation. The book of Genesis states that God created the world in six days with order and purpose.
Christianity has organised its principal beliefs into a structured systematic theology in which it draws its sacred writings and traditions from. These principal beliefs include the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ, the death and resurrection, the Trinity, revelation and salvation. Through the ethical and moral teachings of Christianity and characteristics of religions which consist of sacred texts and writings, rituals and ceremonies, beliefs and believers and ethics; these beliefs can be expressed and connected with the life of adherent’s. The divinity and humanity beliefs identify that Jesus Christ was both fully divine and human, and that he is the second being of the trinity. This intended that he was the divine Son of God and recognised as being ‘one with the Father’.
The three religions are major forces in the world today in spiritual, historical, and literary ways. Their three conceptions of the origin are very similar especially with the spiritual origins. The Christians believed that their religion began at the beginning of time with the Fall of Adam and the promise of the Messiah implicit in the Tree of Life symbolism that symbolized the Atonement and Jesus Christ's mission to redeem mankind from the fall.

The viewing of the world depends on how that person’s vision of their own personal life experiences. A person tries to make sense of life and comprehend the world around them.

Which lead me to this question: what contributions did the historians contribute to integration and if any what were they?

When learning about how to think about, treat and speak to others on a daily basis and one has a biblical worldview, it would be crucial to read deeply into the Bible, as that is the source of determining morality, right and wrong for Christians.
