Bible Study, Genesis 1:1-31.
Geneses Lesson One
Instructor Pastor Dennis
Bible Study, the creation
If you plan to take part in the Bible study lesson now is an excellent time to open your Bible to (Genesis 1:1). In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth
was without form and void. And darkness was on the face of the deep. And the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Our text tells us that God created the heavens and the earth, but one must now ask: Was God also created? And if so, who created
Him? Who is God? When did God exist? Does God also live on the earth, if not, where does God live? Before we study the things that God had created, we need to learn what the Bible teaches us about God, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, who is the third deity
in the heavens.
Welcome, and thank you.
Thank you for choosing to participate in the Bible Study Class. Let me introduce myself; My name is Rev. Dennis
L. Johnson, but you can call me Pastor Dennis.
I was ordained in 1998, and have spent countless hours praying, reading, and studying the Holy Bible. As a pastor, I am more than happy to share with you what I have learned over the years about the Lord. Since I know so little about your spiritual condition
or where you stand faith wise, it would not be fair to start you with lessons you might not understand. Therefore, we will begin our Bible Study with Genesis lesson one. Biblical text, scriptures, references,’ and Bible lessons, are taken from The New
King James Bible. Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc. Used by permission. All rights reserved.
The book of Genesis is one of the sixty-six books that make up the Holy Bible. Most Biblical Scholars believe Moses was
the author of Genesis. Genesis is the first book found in the Bible and is often called the book of beginnings because it teaches man that he has a creator and his creator has a plan and a destiny for his life on the earth. As we began to study the word of
God, it is essential that we first pray and ask Jesus to open our understanding as He did for His Disciples that we too, may comprehend the scriptures (Please read Lk.24:45). Understanding the scriptures is important because Jesus said when anyone hears the
word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart (Matt.13:18-19). In the book of John, Jesus tells His followers how to believe saying hear Moses ((Lk.16:20-31). Jesus said if you believed
Moses writings you would believe Me, for Moses wrote about Me (Please read Jn.5:46:47). So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Please read Romans 10:17).
