In this 7-week study we see themes of creation, relationship, covenant, hope, and redemption that will come to characterize God’s grand story throughout the rest of the Bible.
Genesis, as the first book of the Bible, is the foundational book for the entire biblical canon. In Genesis we find the themes of creation, relationship, covenant, hope, and redemption that will come to characterize God’s grand story throughout the rest of the Bible, all the way to Revelation. Grab a Bible and a pen and explore what our response should be to these first few stories of the Bible. Journey through seven weeks of study that will cover both accounts of creation, the fall, the first murder, the flood, the first covenant, and the tower of Babel.
Shaped by Scripture Series
Human beings are political and social creatures, which means we tend to view everything around us through the lens of our ideological commitments. Unfortunately, we too often submit God’s Word and message to the demands of our preferred ideologies. As a result, we gain only a partial—or, in the worst cases, distorted—understanding of God’s Word. The basic premise of the Shaped by Scripture series is that faithful response to God’s Word is possible only when we faithfully hear the whole message in a given biblical passage. The goal of this series is to offer a simple, easy-to-follow method of systematically studying the Bible that will cause the Bible itself to play an active role in shaping our worldview. Join us in group or individual study as we delve more deeply into Scripture in order to produce a faithful hearing of God’s Word that leads to a faithful response from God’s people.
