The Journey
From Eden created to Eden restored.

Introduction

The word of God reveals His character.  The enemy of good has tempted us to fear God as a severe judge with a harsh, exacting and unforgiving nature.  Our connect group is on a quest to rediscover the true loving character of God as manifest in each book of the Bible and revealed in the life and death of His Son.  Instead of the circular voyage of life that many seem to be enamored with these days, this quest, the Journey, has a historical beginning and an ultimate goal - from Eden created to Eden restored.

The Journey meets from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm in the Community Room 203.

January 25, 2020 - Genesis

Teacher: Won Huh

Listen to the book of Genesis from BibleGateway: ESV, KJV, MSG, NIV

Genesis is the book of beginnings – the creation of the world, the human race, the entrance of sin and death, and God’s promise to solve the sin problem. As you read the Book of Genesis and enjoy the familiar stories, look for how God interacts with the people.

  • Why do you think God created the world and the human race?
  • What does the flood story tell you about God?
  • If you think you have a dysfunctional family, find solace from the stories and see how God continues to work with the far-from-perfect families.
  • Look for God’s desire to bless His creation despite their lack of trust and repeated failures.
  • Look for the unfolding of God’s plans to save the world.

  • Creation of the universe and of mankind (1:1 – 2:25)
  • The beginning of sin and suffering (3:1-24)
  • From Adam To Noah (4:1 – 5:32)
  • Noah and the flood (6:1 – 10:32)
