18 June 2023 (am) – Genesis 11:10 – 32
|Andy Bruins preaching from Genesis on Sunday 18th June 2023.|
This is the story of the tower of Babel. It explains how Babylon (the first city) got its name as well as the origin of diverse languages and the scattering of the nations across the earth.
The Babel incident is another universal judgement on mankind to curb the rampant spread of sin. Here we see the folly of mankind in his weakness raising up a proud head before God, only to find that all of their plans come to nothing.
Q Why do you think so many people turn their back on God or live as if He doesn’t exist?
Q Read Genesis 11:1-9. In v1-4, what are the signs that mankind has become proud? What’s wrong with this?
Q What does v6 mean? Why is it a bad thing?
Q What is God’s solution in v7-9? How do we see the kindness of God in this?
Q Should we be for or against a “New World Order” where the world reunites to become one nation with one government?
Why does this story suggest that it cannot work?
Q What will be the answer to finally reuniting the nations? (see Ephesians 2:13-22 and Revelation 7:9-10)
