Genesis: Creation through the Flood

We should model ourselves after the Bereans

Acts 17:10-11 10 Then the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

Don’t believe anything I tell you!

Find out for yourself!

The Torah

Genesis The Book of Beginnings

Exodus The Birth of the Nation

Leviticus The Law of the Nation

Numbers The Wilderness Wanderings

Deuteronomy The Laws Reviewed

Genesis anticipates all false philosophies:

• Atheism (Genesis says the world was created by God)

• Pantheism (Genesis says God is transcendent and distinguishable)

• Polytheism (Genesis says there is One God)

• Materialism (Genesis says that matter had a beginning)

• Humanism (Genesis says that God, not man, is the ultimate reality)

• Evolutionism (Genesis says “God created”)

• Uniformism (Genesis says God intervenes in His creation)

The Creation Week

Who created everything in Genesis?

John 1

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 He was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

The Creation Week

Day 1 formless Earth, light and darkness

Day 2 Formation of Earth’s atmosphere, separating the water into two parts:
(a) oceanic and subterranean water
(b) atmospheric water.

Day 3 Dry land, oceans, vegetation

Day 4 sun, moon, stars

The Creation Week

Day 5 Water creatures, birds

Day 6 land animals, man, woman

Day 7 God rested: The Sabbath

Mark 2:27 And He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. 28 Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath.”

The fall

Genesis 3

1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

Satan causes doubt in God’s Word

The First Act of “Religion”

Genesis 3:7

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked;

and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons

God’s plan of Redemption

Gen 3:21

21 Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.

Cain and Abel

• Offerings: Cain’s = fruit of his own labors; Abel’s = a Lamb

• Cain’s offering rejected. Why?

• Cain murders Abel

Genesis 8:4

And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

Why did the Holy Spirit want us to know this very date?

New Beginnings

Jesus Crucified on the 14th of Nisan; In the grave: 3 days;

Resurrection: 17th of Nisan (the “7th month” of the Genesis Calendar)

Noah’s “new beginning” on the Planet Earth was on the anniversary—

in anticipation—of our “new beginning” in Christ!
