Beginnings of Early Mankind (Creation to ca. 2100 B.C)

The Beginning

“Is it possible to imagine a time when nothing existed?  Was there a time when the universe had a beginning?  Since recorded history began, men and women of every generation, culture, and place have searched for answers.  Some say it all happened by chance, without any reason or purpose whatever.  But given what appears to be intelligent design and order throughout the universe, an origin by chance seems hard to accept.  And life without meaning seems clearly contrary to the very mind which searches for meaning.  So what are the answers?  Where did I come from, and why am I here?  How did it all begin?”

Read Genesis 1-2:4

Adam and Eve

“The Genesis account of the beginnings of all things is a revelation which ascribes creation to an all-powerful, all-knowing, and purposeful Supreme Being–a living Creator and spiritual God acting with meaningful deliberation. 

…giving a special account of the first man and woman, known as Adam and Eve.  Adam is formed first from elements of the earth, then Eve is formed from part of Adam’s own body, suggesting a wholeness and unity between man and woman.

In Eden, Adam and Eve live in a time of innocence until both are tempted by a serpent; being used on this occasion by the Devil, who will subsequently be identified as God’s adversary in the spirit realm and the great Tempter of mankind to do evil.  The effect of Adam and Eve’s disobedience to God is a new acquaintance with sin and the reality of punishment in which they, like all generations thereafter, must face the hardships and struggles which life on the earth imposes.”

Read Genesis 2:5-3:24

All quotations taken from The Daily Bible

Along with my time on the treadmill this year, I will be exercising my Spiritual legs as I walk through the Bible.

“… that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD.”   Deuteronomy 8:3

The Daily Bible

 

I have chosen to go through The Daily Bible because it is the only Bible that I have actually been able to stick with and read all the way through.  And as the saying goes…

 

 

 

 

What I love about this Bible is that it gives a summary of what you will be reading that day, which is such a help for me to better understand the Scripture.

It also lays out for you exactly what you need to read each day in order to finish in one year…which is no tall feat.  Reading the Bible through in a year is challenging; some days requires quite a bit of reading in some books that, in my mind, are not terribly exciting.

It is a chronological Bible, which gives quite unique insight into God’s great scheme and planning and I have found it to be a very interesting way to read through Scripture.

But what I love most is how it divvy’s up the Psalms.  It is so cool to read David’s struggles with Saul and his enemies, while reading the Psalms he wrote during each struggle, each time of doubt and fear while continuing to give praise to God.

So, my plan this year for this blog is to post the daily reading plan along with insight quotes from the commentary given before each reading from The Daily Bible.  I will continue to post how God works in my life as He leads, but I will focus my time on preparing the book I feel God leading me to write instead of making excuses at to why I can’t.

I hope you will join me on this journey…

“For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”   Romans 15:4
