GENESIS AND THE GRACE OF GOD (OT650)
A REVELATION OF GOD'S GRACE FROM THE BEGINNING
This is a study of a book of the Bible which lays the foundation for all Scripture and for the great doctrines of the Bible. This course studies the beginning of the universe, man, the Sabbath, marriage, sin, sacrifice and salvation, the family, civilization, government nations, and Israel. Physical geography and biblical archeology will also be focused on, as they provide insight and understanding to the flow of the biblical narrative.

► Answer the question: "Why did God wait so long after the time of Adam to send his son?"
► Answer the question: "Why do bad things happen to good people?"
► Answer the question: "Is evolution true?"
► Discuss the gap theory.
► Discuss the relevance of the word "day" t the creation narrative.
► Enable the student to clearly see the gracious hand of God at work in the lives of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
► Provide a biblical foundation to understanding the rest of Scripture.
