God created the world in six days:

Day 1- heavens and the earth.(v1), Light(v3)
Day 2- sky(v6-8)
Day 3- land and sea (v9-10),plants(v11)
Day 4- sun, moon, stars(v14-18)
Day 5- creatures of the sea and birds(v20-22)
Day 6- land animals(24-25),man (v26-27)

“Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.” (v 28)

“God saw all the He had made, and it was very good.” (v 30)

Ch 2

v 1 Does that mean the entire universe was completed in these six days, not just the earth?

v 2-3 God rested on the seventh day; we should set aside a day, if possible, for rest too. Rest as in spending time with God and the church.

v 7 The first human, Adam, was created from the dust of the ground.

v 8 Eden was in the east

v 9 In the garden of Eden there were all kind of trees pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the

middle were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. What was the tree of

life?

v 10 A river flowing from Eden seperated into four headwaters:

1.Pishon v 11
2. Gihon v13
3. Tigris v 14
4. Euphrates v 14

v 15-17 Man was originally created to just enjoy the perfect world God had created; the only command

God gave was to not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

v 18 Most of us are called to be married, so that together the husband and wife would be able to

help each other in serving God.

v 19-20 Man names the animals

v 21-23 Eve( the first woman) was made from Adam’s ribs.

v 24 As Eve was created out of Adam’s rib, when a man and a woman are married, they are joined back

together.

v 25 This was before sin, so there was no sexual immorality.

Ch 3

v 1 Satan tempts Eve as a serpent.

q’s: Why did the devil choose the form of a serpent? What does it mean to be “more crafty than any of the wild animals that the Lord God had made.”?

v 2-3 Even replies to the serpent, but changes some of God’s words.

q’s: Did Eve already sin before touching the fruit, in that she changed God’s original command?

v 4-6 The serpent tricks Eve into eating the forbidden fruit along with Adam.

– Adam was with her the whole time and could have stopped her, but he chose not to.

– Sin enters the world.

v 7-13 Adam and Eve became aware that they had sinned against God and tried to hide from God. God finds them, and both Adam and Eve begin to blame others for their sin.

– When I sin, I have no one to blame but myself.

– Sin keeps us away from God, so don’t dwell in it.

v 14-15 God curses the serpent, the devil.

q’s: Does that mean snakes did not slither on the ground before?

– Satan does his best to cause us to fall, but Jesus has already defeated satan.

(v 15) This is the promise of a Savior to come, which was later fulfilled when Jesus defeated satan by dying on the cross for our sins.

v 16 God curses Eve and woman.

q’s: What does it mean by your desire will be for your husband?

v 17-19 God curses Adam and man.

(v 19) Mankind will now die an earthly death.

v 20 Adam names Eve

v 21 Here the first death in the Bible is recorded, when God makes clothes for Adam and Eve.

v 22-24 God banishes Adam and Eve from the garden of Eden, then places cherubim and a flaming sword to guard the Garden.

q’s: Does the Garden of Eden still exist? What does this verse mean to us now?

Ch 4

v 1-2 Cain and Abel are born to Eve. First birth of mankind from woman. Abel tended sheep while Cain worked the soil.

v 8 First murder in history

Ch 11

The world only had one language and common speech; the people found a large plain in Shinar and settled there. The people got together to make a tower that would reach the heavens so they could make a name for themselves. (1-4) God sees this and scatters the language of the people so they would not be able to communicate. (5-9)

v 3-4 I will always fail on my own, in my pride when I try to accomplish things on my own strength. I don’t want to make a name for myself but give all glory to God, always.

v 6 q’s: Why does God always make these sarcastic remarks? Would man really be able to do anything if we all banded together under one language? That is impossible. God did this out of love for man.

Ch 12

God promisese to Abram to leave his country and go where He commands him to go. God promises Abram that he will make him into a great nation. ( 1-3) Abram obeys and reach the land of Canaan. As Abram travels throuhg the land, God appears to him in a dream and tells him that all this land will be given to his offspring, so Abram builds an altar for the Lord. (4-7) Abram continues traveling and builds another altar to the Lord and talking to Him. ( 8-9)

Negev– dry or parched regions.

v 1-3 God’s promise to Abraham.

– God keeps His promises; He will never forsake His people.

v 4-5 I need to also be as obedient as Abram was; as soon as God had commanded him, he obeyed.

v 7 God often speaks to us through dreams; I need to always thank Him and give Him praise. Thank You God.

Ch 13

The Lord promises to Abram that his offspring will be like the dust of the earth, and that they will inherit the whole earth. (14-18)

v 14-18 This is God’s promise to Abraham. We, the descendants of Abraham, are too numerous to count; God keeps His promises and will never go back on them. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, always.

Ch 15
