Questions For A Bible Study

In Genesis, God’s story is revealed through a series of key decisions made by key characters. The book of Exodus reveals that these decisions were not easy for the Israelites, and that they had significant consequences for them and their nation. It is therefore important to study Exodus in order to understand how God works in our lives today.

What are the key decisions in the book of Genesis? How is each one an act of trust or faith? To what extent is this true of your own life?

The book of Genesis is full of stories that demonstrate God’s faithfulness and our need for the same. Here are some examples:

  • Abraham’s decision to leave his home and go to a place he has never seen (Genesis 12)
  • Abraham’s decision to trust God’s promise (Genesis 15)
  • Abraham’s decision to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice (Genesis 22)
  • Joseph’s decision to trust God’s goodness (Genesis 50-52)

In Genesis 12, God call Abraham to go to a land he will be shown. How has God called you to ‘go’? How do you react?

There are two aspects to God’s call: He promises to give us the land, and he requires us to trust him, follow him, be faithful, and willing to go where he leads. The reason why Abraham was chosen was because of his faith. He trusted God despite having no proof that what he heard was true. So if you are going through a difficult time or something negative happens in your life remember that God has called you just like he did with Abraham. Trust in Him because He is faithful!

It also says that even though things may not seem right or fair at times we have to trust him anyways because “you will see me at work” (Genesis 15:13). This means there will always be an answer when we need it most so don’t lose hope just yet!

Consider Lot choosing the ‘well-watered land’ instead of the ‘vast and barren regions’ (Genesis 13). What well-watered land has been attractive to you? How did it turn out?

Consider Lot choosing the ‘well-watered land’ instead of the ‘vast and barren regions’ (Genesis 13). What well-watered land has been attractive to you? How did it turn out?

Lot chose the well-watered land because it was more attractive, but it turned out to be a bad choice. It wasn’t enough for him to drink from wells or springs; he drank too much wine and became intoxicated (Genesis 19:30). He had become so attached to his own personal pleasure that he couldn’t get along with his neighbors anymore. His choices led him into conflict with other people who were also looking for their own good.

Read Genesis 19 carefully. What does this story say about human nature? What does it say about God’s goodness?

The story of Lot’s wife is about human nature. When faced with the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Lot’s wife looks back on what she has left behind and is turned into a pillar of salt. This story demonstrates how easily we are tempted to look back on the past rather than focus on where God leads us in our future. We can learn from this story that it is important to move forward in faith when surrounded by destruction or temptation, and that God’s goodness will always lead us towards grace and hope.

Read Genesis 22 about Abraham offering his son Isaac on the altar. Have you had a moment when you have trusted God at such a deep level that you’ve come close to giving up everything for him?

The story of Abraham trusting God to give him a son is one that is repeated often in the Bible. It’s an example of how our relationship with God grows, and how we learn to trust him more deeply over time. Have you had a moment when you have trusted God at such a deep level that you’ve come close to giving up everything for him?

What does this tell us about human nature or about God’s goodness?

When Joseph was at his lowest point (in jail) he said, ‘You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good’. Can you relate to this idea from your own experience?

This story is a story of redemption. Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers, falsely accused of rape and imprisoned for years. God was with him in prison, preparing him for a great future when he would be second only to Pharaoh himself and he would use his power to save many lives from famine.

To me, this idea represents the fact that God has an amazing plan for my life too! When I’m at my lowest point (and I’ve been there), all I have to do is remember that God has a plan and it’s bigger than anything I could ever imagine on my own without Him!

In Exodus 3, Moses asks God what his name is, and receives the answer ‘I AM who I AM’. When have you experienced a sense of being ‘known’ by God in a deep way?

When Moses asks God what his name is, he receives the answer “I AM who I AM.” God’s name is Yahweh and it means ‘I am who I am’. His name isn’t just a label; it’s a statement of who he is.

When we experience God as our loving Father, we are experiencing something that goes to the very core of who he is. We can rest assured that when we know him in this way, he knows us too.

In Exodus 3:14-15 we read: “God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM.’ And He said further: ‘Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel:”I AM has sent me to you.”‘
