Genesis 1 & 2: The Creation of the Cosmos

January 7th Reading (Genesis Challenge)

Notice that Chapter 1 is an overview of the creation from a void, to the world as we see around us, with humans as it stewards.

Chapter two focuses specifically on the creation of the human race and our early interaction with the Creator.

What are your thoughts? Does Genesis 2 act as a sidebar to Genesis 1? What important insights should we gain from reading Genesis 2 that we can’t get in Genesis 1?

For Your Genesis Challenge Journal

As you work your way through this first section, use these four goals as guides for discovery and personal growth:

  • Find at least one new fact.
  • Discover at least one cultural difference between times in Genesis and our own culture.
  • Pinpoint one faith principle (you may find the same principle in several sections).
  • Select one attitude, behavior, or action that you want to apply in your own life.

You will find it helpful to keep a journal or log to record your thoughts, questions, and findings. Please feel free to share what you are learning on the Aspect Ministries Facebook page.
