How to Study the Book of Genesis

Some of you may not be all that thrilled about studying the book of Genesis again. However, it has been 7 years, so it’s time for a review.

I hear all the time that no one wants to study the book of Genesis because the stories are SO familiar. Even non-Christians know the story of Noah and the Ark, the story of God calling Abraham our of Ur to the Promised Land, the story of Joseph who got throw down a well and left to die, the story of Cain killing his brother, Able, and the list goes on and on.

However, in this day and time, in the midst of COVID-19, we all need a new beginning.

Back at the beginning of this year when we made our resolutions, no one could have predicted the predicament we are in. Most all of your plans were ruined. Thus, as the COVID-19 restrictions begin to loosen, it’s time for a mid-year new beginning. And what better place to make your new beginning than where God made His?

Enter this study with an open mind and an open heart, and let God do the rest.

  1. I received your update a couple of days ago that you had an email that contained all the Genesis materials. When I go into myBSF I can only access the questions for each lesson, not the notes. Can you forward that information? Thanks!


  2. You know, I have studied Genesis before, but I always learn something new. I find the lineage interesting and when Abraham and Sarah get ahead of God and he has Ishmael, how that God doesn’t forget him, but gives him a place in history. Although it isn’t the history saved for Isaac and God’s people, he isn’t forgotten.
    Thank you for the reminder to study it with an open heart and mind.

  3. Yes, we definitely need a new beginning. This covid-19 has changed the way we do everything, even the way we worship. We can’t allow this covid-19 to stop our worship. We must be that bold to speak for the Lord. Don’t go out of bounds, you will stumble and fall, someone is always watching.
