 So You Think You Know Your Bible: Genesis Part 1 – Genesis Chapters 1 to 10

 

 

Introduction

Although you will not find it on any best seller list, the Bible is the best-selling book of all time Sky Eden@Bedok Showflat . Every year, it easily maintains its position as the top seller in the world. It is absent from best seller lists because its annual sales figures are so high that they dwarf the sale of every other book, year after year. It sells best because it is living, powerful and of universal appeal. All of Western civilisation hangs on its principles. It has enriched language with hundreds of expressions including ‘a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush’; ‘thorn in the flesh’; ‘feet of clay’; ‘two-edged sword’; the land of milk and honey; ‘faith will move mountains’; and ‘at the eleventh hour.’ Some of history’s most influential authors looked to it for inspiration. This study, preceded by a quiz, can be used to test the reader’s knowledge of this first book of the Bible; as material for group Bible study; or simply for gathering inspiration.

Prayer before studying Torah:

Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melekh ha’olam, Asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotaV v’tzivanu la’asok b’divrei Torah.

We bless you, Adonai our God, Sovereign King, Who hallows us with mitzvot, commanding us to engage with the words of the Torah. Amen.
