This paper will not deal with text-critical issues concerning the Genesis lectures. An analysis of secondary sources is minimized in preference for the primary source. This allows for a more comprehensive integration of Luther's theology in relation to the hidden and revealed God. The author's assertion is that Luther explains the text in view of the hidden and revealed God in such a way that it forms a comprehensive theological framework. Beyond the secondary sources quoted, the bibliography provides additional references dealing with some of the themes present in the Genesis lectures.
