Week 1: Genesis 1-11

Prepare these questions for Sunday, March 3, 2013.

These are the first 11 chapters of the Bible.  They deal with some pretty famous stories of the old testament and some of the most talked about events of all time.  As you read, consider these questions.

1.  What major topics are included in these chapters? (creation, the first sin, Noah's Ark, etc.)

2. A lot of these verses include events that are hard to understand.  What questions do you have after reading these passages?  (Did creating the world take 7 literal days? How did all those animals get on that boat? What's up with talking snakes?)

3. What characteristics do you see in God after reading these verses?  Is he loving, angry, faithful, or just simply too hard to understand in your eyes?

4.  What one passage or verse stood out as your favorite?
