Old Testament Study – Part 2. The Old Testament series continues on January 22, 2006 with part 2 in the series. The goal of this series is to provide a look at some of the peaks in scripture to motivate you to study more and learn all those Old Testament stories. The word of God is important. There are two things that will last forever, change and the word of God. For example, in Luke 16:19-33, we are told the story of a rich man and poor man named Lazarus. When the rich man died and went to hell, he saw Lazarus across a great gulf in Abraham’s bosom. The rich man being tormented, asked Abraham to send someone to his family to get them to repent. Abraham said “unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” There are 50 chapters in Genesis and the first 11 covers 2,000 years of human history. Chapter 3 tells us of sin and redemption. Chapter 4 brings along Cain and Abel. In chapter 5, Adam had another son named Seth. Noah comes along in Chapter 6 and he and his family are the only righteous ones left on the earth due to an angelic eruption. After the flood in chapter 10, the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth are the progeny for all the races of mankind. Chapter 11 tells of the rebellion of the Tower of Babel with Nimrod. The judgment upon Babylon caused the implementation of different languages and the separation of the continents. Chapters 12 through 50 covers the history of four men: Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, and Moses.
