Book Of Genesis – Lesson #23

Lesson 23:  Genesis 35; Genesis 36; and Genesis 37

Read Genesis 35:1-15

Chapter 35 opens with God’s command to Jacob to fulfill the vow made about thirty years earlier (Gen. 28:20-22). The Lord used the tragic events of the previous chapter to prepare the patriarch to do it. Notice that God is referred to about twenty times in this chapter, in contrast to no references in Genesis 34.  Before obeying God’s command to return to Bethel, Jacob first ordered his family to put away the foreign household gods and to put on clean clothes. As soon as they did this, they became a terror to their heathen neighbors. It was appropriate that Jacob should build an altar at ͅEl Bethel and worship the God who had protected him from his brother, Esau.

Once again God stated that Jacob’s name was now Israel and renewed the covenant He had made with Abraham and Isaac. The patriarch marked the sacred spot with a pillar and once again named the place Bethel. Continue Reading Here

Book Of Genesis – Lesson #4

Lesson 4:  Genesis Chapter 4

Genesis 4:1-9

Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore  Cain, and said, “I have acquired a man from the Lord.2 Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. 3 And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord. 4 Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, 5 but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.

6 So the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? 7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”  8 Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him.  9 Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?Continue Reading Here

Women Of The Bible: – Lesson #2 – Cain’s And Lamech’s Wives

CAIN’S WIFE (Scripture reference: Genesis 4:1–18)

One of the first questions scoffers are likely to ask young Christians is, “Where did Cain get his wife?” The answer is in Genesis 5:3: “After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters.” Cain married one of his sisters. This troubles some, as marriage between brothers and sisters is forbidden in Moses’ law (Lev. 18:9). But that law was millenniums away. And the period following creation was certainly unique.

For one thing, the human gene pool was pure. After the Fall, genes began to mutate. While the mutation has been gradual, medical science today traces many of the diseases that distress humankind to flaws in the genetic code. Marriage between brothers and sisters can lead to serious problems for their offspring, as any flaws in the family genetic code would be magnified. History has many examples of the dangers of intra-family marriages.

The Caesars had a genetic propensity for epilepsy, the Hapsburgs for hemophilia. Adam and Eve’s children were copies of the original, and the purity of God’s creation protected the first humans from the damage intermarriage would cause later on. Continue Reading Here
