The work "Genesis" is the work "genesis". I see no need for any qualifier at all.
(AACR cataloguers use to qualify everything. German cataloging tradition shows, that it is possible to use less qualifiers.)

I would just like to point out the Wiki disambiguation page for Genesis:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genesis

As I have pointed out before, the disambiguation pages of Wikipedia are one area where we can see a huge improvement over our traditional library tools. I can't imagine anybody preferring our methods to a page like this.

Still, even they add several qualifiers.
