Simply teaching the Bible, simply

Genesis 6:1-22

This study is part of our series of verse by verse studies of Genesis, the 1st book in the Bible. Taught by our pastor, Simeon Forder, at our Sunday morning service on the 20th August 2023.

About this book

Genesis is the first book in the Bible, and in its more than 1500 verses, there are over 50 prophecies, 100+ commands, over 70 promises, and almost 100 distinct messages from God. As well as recording the firsts of so many things — including the first marriage, sin, child, murder, death, laughs, tears — this book also explains God’s established order in all things; from creation to Israel, marriage to tithing, and all before the law is even mentioned. But ultimately, this book points to Jesus as our Saviour, not only in obvious ways, but in its smaller details too.

About this study

Genesis six is key chapter in understanding the Bible, for in it we first hear how the fallen angels married human women, and secondly that they produced giant offspring – both here, and after the flood. Understanding why this happened, and what God did to ensure our salvation is key in explaining not only the flood, but the battles we see throughout the Old Testament. Also, we learn how God showed grace to Noah, and our salvation was foretold.

Application questions

  • Are you walking with God as Enoch did? (being diligent to show yourself approved in Him)
  • Are you truly in awe of what God has done for you? (or are you dismissing it as unimportant)
