Genesis: the beginning and sin entering the world


I love Bible trivia and facts and I love sharing them even if you may know them already. Think of this as a refresher 🙂

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth

In the book of Genesis, we get a sense of why God created human beings to live in this big wide world. Adam was created on the sixth day in God’s very own image and was given dominion over the animals. In this book, we read how sin entered the world and how we can be reconciled to God.

^ Move over American presidents’ wives, Eve was the First Lady. Lame joke, eh? *shrugging* At least I tried. 🙂 Anyway, Adam and Eve were the first human beings to ever inhabit the earth.

^ The tree that Adam and Eve ate from was not an apple nor was it a pomegranate or a grape or mango for that matter. *Gasps* I’m telling the truth, though. Read all about it in The Temptation and Fall of Man

^ Genesis means origin. Six creative days are mentioned and God rested on the 7th day which is known as the Sabbath (day of rest/worship).

^ Elohim and Yahweh are two different names that the book of Genesis uses for God.

^ Genesis ends with the death of Joseph. This man was a true hero.
