What was the purpose of Genesis? Genesis=” Source” or “Origin”

To show the nature of God

To show the nature of God’s people (Israel)

To show the destiny of God’s people

To give Israel the historical and theological basis for being the chosen people of God

4

Let’s break it down…… Before we look specifically at the creation story, be reminded that the most important question being answered in the Biblical creation story is...

not How but Who?

5

origins-GENESIS 1-11 Primeval History

(Creation, Fall, Flood, Dividing of Nations/Languages)

6

promises-GENESIS 12-50

The Patriarchal History

7

We are Created in the Image of God, therefore:

We are reflections of God’s glory.

We have the ability to reflect God’s character.

• God made both man and woman in His image.

8

THE BLESSING TO MANKIND!!!

Populate the earth

Authority over the material world

Authority over living creatures

Plants are given for food

9

Theology from Genesis Chapters 1-4

Man has capacity to serve God

Man is responsible to obey the word of God

Institution of marriage is sanctioned by God

Mankind over creation in general  

God gives special care of provision to the man and woman (garden, work, clothes, promise not to forsake)

10

-THE FALL-
Four points of God’s Grace as He deals with sinners

His grace in seeking out Adam (3:9)

His grace in promising them a Savior (3:15)

God’s grace in clothing them (3:21)

Removing Adam and Eve from Eden (3:24)

11

-CAIN AND ABEL-
“Woe to them. They have taken the way of Cain.” Jude 1:1
The “Way of Cain” appears to be

rejection God’s way and then being mad at God when He does not accept the way you have invented in its place.

12

THE FLOOD-
Points of Grace

God initiated the way of salvation (the ark)

The Holy Spirit allowed Noah to warn people during the 120 years it took him to build the ark

Even after they entered the ark there were 7 more days until the rains came

God sent the flood to purify and restore good on the earth for future generations

There is no mention of the righteousness of Noah’s family, yet they are all saved

13

THEOLOGY FROM THE FLOOD-

Because God is Holy He must judge sin

God allows persecutions to come on His faithful but not His wrath

God, Himself, provides the means for escaping judgment

14

The covenant of Noah 9:1-17:

Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth

Fear of man in animal kingdom, Man still has authority over animal kingdom

In Verse 3 the human diet is changed (now INCLUDES meat)

Verse 4 established one prohibition about diet DO NOT CONSUME BLOOD!!

Capital punishment

15

TOWER OF BABEL-
The sins of the Tower of Babel were

pride and rebellion!

16

ABRAM’S CALLING-
7 Points to the Blessing of Abraham

I will make you into a great nation

I will bless you

I will make your name great

You will be a blessing to others

I will bless those who bless you’

Whoever curses you I will curse

All peoples on earth will be blessed through you

17

“Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.” Genesis 15:6
~In the New Testament the Apostle Paul puts great theological emphasis on the fact that Abrahams faith caused him to be

“credited” with righteousness (Genesis 15) long before this ‘sacrament’ of circumcision was added (Genesis 17).~

18

Abraham’s testing:
Abraham answered, “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.”
And the two of them went on together. (22:7-8)
. 14 So Abraham called that place ....???

The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”

19

-THE TOLDOT OF ISSAC-
The New Testament makes a point of showing God’s sovereignty through his choosing of Jacob over Esau even before they were born.
It does appear that the saga of Jacob and Esau is indeed an example of God’s sovereignty,

but this does not mean that Esau had no free will for which he would be accountable.

20

The Birthright:
Advantages and Privileges

This baby became the object of special affection.

He would legally receive a double portion of his father’s estate (in this case, this would be two-thirds).

In the case of Abraham’s seed, it included the great spiritual benefit of the covenant blessing.

21

Esau becomes the Biblical symbol

(the pardon saint if you will) of human lust.

22

Jacob
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are among the most significant people in the Old Testament. It is important to realize that this significance is not based upon their personal characters, but upon the

character of God. They were not the perfect heroes we might have expected, instead, they were just like us, trying to please God, but often falling short.

23

Jacob, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are among the most significant people in the Old Testament. It is important to realize that this significance is not based upon their personal characters, but upon

Jacob’s Prophecies Regarding His Sons 49:8-10:
10 The scepter will not depart from Judah,
    nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet,

until he to whom it belongs shall come
    and the obedience of the nations shall be his.

30

Notable Tribes:

The Kingship is given to Judah from whom came David’s line of kings, and Jesus Christ.

Both were 30 years old at the beginning of their public ministry (Lk. 3:23).

Both saved their nation and the world (Matt. 1:21).

The evil done to them, God turned to good (1 Cor. 2:7-8).
