Flight to Egypt
Series: The Beginning of a People
This week we are returning to our study through the book of Genesis. Last year we started in Genesis 1 and traced the theme of God creating all things and particularly creating humans in His image to worship and work for His glory. We saw sin enter the world through the deception of the Serpent and the man and woman's lack of trust in God's Word. Sin continued to increase with Cain and Abel, and with all people in the days of Noah, but then God sent the flood to bring justice to the earth and to start over through Noah's family. But even after the flood we saw that mankind is bent to rebel against God. Noah and his family sin, and then in Babel the people sought to build a tower out of brick all the way up to heaven as a show of their independence from God. But even there, God displayed his power through confusing their languages and scattering them over all the earth. Following that scene in Genesis 11, we are introduced in chapter 12 to a man named Abram. God speaks to Abram and tells him "I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing" (12:2). Abram responds in faith and leaves his home and goes where God tells him.
