1 Genesis 1

2 Introduction

3 God selected certain men called prophets to write down His words.

4 He chose 40 different men who wrote different parts of the Bible.

5 The time between the first prophet’s writing and the last prophet’s writing was about 1600 years (1500 BC - 100 AD).

6 All but one of these men were Hebrews, and they wrote down God’s words in their own languages –Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek.

7 Even though it was written by 40 different men, the Bible is consistent.

8 2 Timothy 3:16 - “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

9 2 Peter 1:21 - “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

10 The Bible is a big book containing 66 smaller books, with 2 major divisions

11 The Old Testament - 39 books

12 The New Testament - 27 books

13 The Bible is like a library of books rather than a single novel.

14 There are different types of writing in the Bible; for instance, poetry, history, and letter. The style of the book makes a difference in the way you read the book.

15 Creation Genesis 1:1-3

16 Verse 1 God is eternal (He was already there); the world is not eternal.

17 God is supreme (above all things) and sovereign.

18 God is perfectly intelligent enough to have made the world.

19 God is perfectly powerful enough to have made everything all at once.

20 God is completely independent of everything and everyone.(He existed without creation before He made it.)

21 Verse 2 God is spirit (invisible, can’t be seen).

22 God is present everywhere.

23 Verse 3 God created the world simply by speaking.

24 It began by the power of His Word; everything began this way.

25 Verse 1 If you saw a painting in my home, you would ask me “Who made this painting?” not “What made this painting?”

26 In other words, creativity demands personality; God created the world, therefore, He is personal or has personality.

27 Covenants Another name for a covenant is a testament.

28 What is a covenant? Covenant - a strong agreement between two people wanting to form a relationship.

29 God wanted to form relationship with man. The being that created all things wanted to know personally one of the things He created.

30 This demonstrates the personal side of God. Even the divisions of the Bible show that God has desired relationship from the beginning. Old Testament/Covenant and the New Testament/Covenant.
