TIMELINE OF THE BIBLE
Adam and Eve
The Lord created man from the dust of the earth and named Him Adam (Gen 2:7)
God also created creatures of the earth, but none of these creatures were suitable companions (Gen 2:18-20)
So God created Eve from the rib of Adam (Gen 2:21-25)
Shalom was accomplished
The Seventh Day
God Saw that his creation was good and rested
He blessed the seventh day and made it holy
On that day God was prepared to rule
Shalom is Broken..
Adam and Eve Tempted by the serpent (Gen 3)(Websters Dictionary)
Cain and Abel (Gen 4)
Noah's Ark (Gen 5-10:1)
Tower of Babel (Gen 11:1-9)
Connection with God is lost...?
Adam and Eve are told by God not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge
Serpent tempts Eve, places doubt in Eve's mind about God
“For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Gen 3:5)
Eve then tempts Adam to eat the fruit of the forbidden tree
Results of the Fall
Man become "like God" knowing good and evil...
Because of this, death is introduced
And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” - Genesis 3:22
The Mother promise:
And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush[b] your head,
and you will strike his heel.” - Genesis 3:15
Results of the Fall Cont'd
Cain and Abel: Fratricide: Murdering your sibling (Gen 4:8)
The Flood: God was not pleased with man, wanted to clear wickedness of the earth.. (Gen 6:6-7)
But God Commanded Noah to build an ark and save all the animals of the earth by pairs..
"Noah did everything just as God commanded him." Gen 7:5
God made a covenant with Noah, never to flood the earth ever again.. Genesis 8:22
Results of the Fall Cont'd
The Tower of Babel: Genesis 11
At the time, there was only one language on the earth. (Gen 11:1-2
Humans wanted to make a tower to make a name for themselves. (Gen 11:3-4)
Example of autonomy: acting separate from God..
God was not pleased, so he scattered people and languages around the world... (Gen 11:5-9)
Patriarchal Period and Other Prophets
Patriarchal Period (Gen 12-50):
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1-2 Kings, 1-2 Samuel
All Major and minor prophets..
Patriarchal Period: Abraham
God's response to Babel was to call on Abraham...
God promised Abraham 3 main points:
1) Many descendents
2) Relationship with God filled with blessing
3) A land of their own
Patriarchal Period: Isaac and Jacob
From Abraham to Isaac to Jacob
Joseph is born, and sold into slavery...
But establishes a people to be a "blessing to all nations"
END OF GENESIS
Relationship of blessing with God
Land of their own
Exodus and Leviticus
The Period in Egypt
Israelites under slavery because of the Pharaoh
God chooses Moses to lead them out of slavery
Moses leads Israelites into the wilderness
Then brought to Mount Sinai
There, God gives them a new identity:
1) Are a treasured possession
2) Priestly Kingdom
3) Holy Nation
On Mount Sinai: 10 Commandments
Moses was given the 10 Commandments, which stated:
1) In everything you do, put God first.
2) Do not worship Idols, only God.
3) Do not use God's name in vain.
4) Keep the Sabbath Day holy.
5) Respect your parents.
6) Do not murder.
7) Do not commit adultery.

10) Do not get jealous

For God to dwell with his people everyday.
Leviticus: Living with a Holy God
Israel bound to covenant = Ready to be a Holy Nation?
Covenant: A binding agreement
Israel gets ready to enter the promised land...
Cannot however, because there is unbelief amongst the people
Therefore they travel in wilderness for 40 years...
People are on the borders of the promised land...
Moses passes away on the Planes of Moab at the age of 120 years.
Deuteronomy is filled with stories and laws
Joshua is chosen as the successor to Abraham
Israel show that:
1) Israel is a great nation
2) Israel is in the Land
