Learn the Bible in 24 Hours – Hour 3 – Genesis 4-11

The Prehistorical Period

Hour 3 is an enlightening study.  The genealogy of Genesis 5 and the fascinating look at Noah’s ark whet my appetite for a deeper look at God’s Word!  We were also presented with the following riddle:  Methuselah is the oldest man in the Bible at 969 years, yet he died before his father.  How can this be?  I’m not going to tell you.  Get into the Word to find out.  If you try to figure it out, but can’t, check out this Bible study or leave me a comment with your email address and I’ll share.

We studied several of Satan’s stratagems (schemes), as well.  These were fascinating and got me thinking about the schemes he might be orchestrating now that the Messiah has done what He came to do.  I’d love to hear your own thoughts on this if you’d like to share a comment.

I have discovered that it is more beneficial to sit down and answer the questions at the end of each chapter in the workbook before I get to class.  It gives me an overview of the lesson and prepares me for the lecture and discussion.  Also, using the audio Bible is truly a blessing since I don’t necessarily have the time to sit down and read the homework for next week:  Genesis 12-50.
