Small Group Questions:

  • When an author writes a book they often spend a huge amount of time crafting the very first line of the book. Why do you think the very first verse in the bible begins with the words ‘in the beginning, God’?

  • As you read the first two chapters in the Bible you will see that it takes place in a garden .. then as you read the last chapter of the last book in the Bible you will find that the story concludes with man and God in the garden again. Why would God bookend the Bible in this way?

  • In Gen. 1:26 we find this strange line; “Then God said ‘let us make man in Our own image according to Our own likeness...” What do you think this is talking about? Why do you think this is placed here? What are the implications of this line?

  • As we begin this journey through the Bible, what is God saying to you as you begin? Humanity is made in God’s image, do you find that difficult or easy to believe?
