Genesis is where it all starts. When you study the Bible, it i amazing at how many of the principles in the Bible are based on what happens here, at the very beginning. A believer without a firm foundation has a faith that is kind of hanging there. What is the meaning of Christ if God is not the Creator? Where did death and sin come from if not from the Garden of Eden?
The Book of Genesis teaches us all the answers to the most basic question, “Where are we from?” These answers provide insight into the meaning of life and faith. It is very accurately described as the book of beginnings. In Genesis we see the beginning of the world, the beginning of marriage, the beginning of family, the beginning of sin and death and temptation, the beginning of punishment, the beginning of civilizations, the beginning of faith, the beginning of Israel, and so much more.
If you have never before studied this amazing book or want a fresh view, we hope you will join in with us as we take another look at the foundation building block of the whole Bible. We will look both at deep theological questions or hard to tackle problems and also practical points that can be lived out in our daily lives.
At Study and Obey we believe in verse by verse inductive Bible study. We ourselves have been involved in hosting small group studies, and training small group leaders for years. What you will see in these inductive Bible studies of the book of Genesis, is the result of in depth study of the Word. It can help you personally as you study this great book, or you can use these notes as a teaching guide for small groups.
