Bible Study: The Book of Genesis
A gravestone in St. Mark's Churchyard.
‘Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken; and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a sword flaming and turning to guard the way to the tree of life.’
Genesis 3, 23-24
Having covered Luke and Acts in the New Testament, we started again after the summer break at the very beginning: the Book of Genesis.
By the end of the meeting, we had covered the Creation of the Universe and reached the part where Adam and Eve disobey God by eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and are cast out of Eden forever. There was a lively group discussion about which of them was to blame for the fall, and on the differences between men and women in general!
The next Bible Study evening will be held on October 4th at Willoughby Vicarage (7.30pm - 9pm) when we will continue reading from Genesis 4. Newcomers and regulars always welcome. Contact Reverend Bill Griffiths on 01788 890309.
