Genesis

Bible Study Book of Genesis

Once a person completes the Bible study of Genesis, they should understand why Genesis (the book of beginnings) is not only the foundation of the Pentateuch and Old Testament, but also the entire Bible. The focus of both the book of Genesis and the whole Bible is God (in the beginning God). Not only did “in the beginning God create”, but He also “in the beginning God commanded” Adam not to eat from the “tree of knowledge,” Adam’s disobedience was the original sin of man. This sin established the need of God’s plan, which was laid before the foundation of the World.

God’s Plan:  1 Cor 2:7-8 speak of God’s plan or mystery. It states, “No, the wisdom we speak of is the secret wisdom of God,* which was hidden in former times, though he made it for our benefit before the world began. But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would never have crucified our glorious Lord.”

The purpose of the study of Genesis is like the study of any section of Scripture, which can give one the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus.  As we study the book of Genesis our faith in God and His word should be strengthened since the Bible states “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”  The Bible also says that all Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. The “Word of God” straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right.

During this Bible study of Genesis, you will be exposed to many of the key Christian doctrines and the basic tools of Biblical interpretation and presentation. Each student should become a more thoughtful interpreter of the Bible as they meditate upon God’s Holy Word. Bottom line for the Genesis Bible study course is that the student should increase their knowledge of Genesis, of the Bible as a whole, and of God, while they are developing a stronger Biblical Worldview.

Course Assignments: Lessons Links On Right

After a student finishes all ten lessons of the Genesis study, they then need to do the Doctrine, Theology, and feedback assignment. If they are desiring a counseling certificate they need to do the counseling lesson for that course.
