05 February 2023 (am) – Genesis 3:1-24
|Andy Bruins preaching from Genesis on Sunday 5th February 2023.
Genesis 3 is certainly one of the most important chapters in the Bible when it comes to understanding why the beautiful and good world that God made is the way that it is now. It is also crucial in helping us to understand why we, human beings (made in the image of God) are the way we are too.
Q What are some of the key things that we have learned in Genesis 1 and 2 about God, Creation and Mankind?
Q Read v1-7. What kinds of attacks against God and His word do we see in the dialogue between the Woman and The Snake? What ultimately persuades the Woman to eat the fruit?
Q How is this first sin similar to all sins that come after it?
Q Read v7-13. What are the immediate consequences of their sin? How do they respond to being “found out”?
Q Read v14-19. What are the long term consequences of their sin? How do we see these curses manifested in our world today?
Q Read v20-24. What becomes of Adam and Eve? Why do you think God makes clothes for them? How do v20 and v15 indicate that even amidst the utter disaster of what has happened there is hope?
