1) What have you learned from the lives of those mentioned in Genesis - from Adam and Eve through Joseph? Remember that the things which were written in the Old Testament were written for our instruction , that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scripture we might have hope (Romans 15:4). What are the blessings of obedience and the consequences of disobedience?

2) What are you learned about God - His character, his attributes, and the ways He moves in the lives of men and nations? Since God never changes, can you trust Him? Can you rely on what the Word of God reveals about Him even though you may not fully understand His ways?

3) Jesus took the book of Genesis at face value and attributed its authorship to Moses. as you study the Gospels, you will see that Jesus referred to the creation of Adam and Eve, to the flood, and to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. He even referred to Satan as a murderer from the beginning. Jesus never contradicted the teachings of Genesis; He only affirmed them. Are you going to take God's Word at face value and believe as Jesus did, or are you going to listen to the philosophies of men? Are you going to follow men with finite minds, who critique God and His Word, or are you going to accept the Bible as the Word of God and then think and live accordingly?
