Sample Text

TO READ TODAY: Genesis 1:1-2:25; Matthew 1:1-2:12; Psalms 1:1-6; Proverbs 1:1-6

GENESIS 1:3-2:27

How long did it take God to create the world?

There are two basic views about the days of creation: (1) each day was a literal 24-hour period; (2) each day represents an indefinite period of time (even millions of years). In response to the claims of scientists that the earth is millions or billions of years old, some Christians say there is a gap between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. In this view the first creation was wrecked by Satan's fall; the six days were really a re-creation.

GENESIS 2:9, 16-17

Were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil real trees?

Two views are often expressed: (1) The trees were real, but symbolic. Eating from the tree of life was a symbol of receiving eternal life from God. (2) The trees were real, possessing special properties. By eating the fruit from the tree of life, Adam and Eve could have had eternal life, enjoying a permanent relationship as God's children. Interestingly, the tree of life again appears in a description in Revelation 22 of people enjoying eternal life with God.


Why is the virgin birth important to the Christian faith?

Jesus Christ, God's Son, had to be free from the sinful nature passed on to all other human beings by Adam. Because Jesus was born of a woman, he was a human being; but as the Son of God, Jesus was born without any trace of human sin. The sinless Savior lived a sinless life and died on the cross for the sins of the world.


Why did an angel come to Joseph?

The conception and birth of Jesus Christ were supernatural events beyond human logic or reasoning. Because of this, God sent angels to help certain people understand the significance of what was happening (see Matt. 2:13, 19; Luke 1:11, 26; 2:9). Angels are spiritual beings created by God who help carry out his work on earth. They bring God's messages to people (Luke 1:26), protect God's people (Dan 6:22), offer encouragement (Gen 16:7), give guidance (Exodus 14:19), carry out punishment (2 Samuel 24:16), patrol the earth (Zech 1:9-14), and fight the forces of evil (2 Kings 6:16-18; Rev. 20:1-2). There are both good and bad angels (Rev. 12:7), but because bad angels are allied with the devil, or Satan, they have considerably less power and authority than good angels.
