Part 1: After reading Genesis 1-3, list out the ways these chapters introduce the biblical narrative for the following categories. For each category, the student should include several robust sentences that are focused on the text. One word or sparse answers will not suffice.
What do we learn about:
How humans interact
The way creation reacts with the Creator
The problem of sin
The solution for sin
A photo of the earth from space.
Part 2: After reading Genesis 12:1-3, make note of the three things God promises to Abram: land, offspring (people), and blessing. Why are these three things significant? List the three, and robustly explain why they are important. How are they a part of the solution for sin in Part 1?
Appeal to your Wright textbook for help.
Part 3: In the unfolding story of the OT, the three aspects of God’s promise to Abram continue to be fulfilled throughout the OT. Do some research on the OT storyline (think about using your textbooks, the lectures, CCU’s online resources, and good peer reviewed content such as thebibleproject.com) and cite places where these three aspects of God’s promise to Abram show up later.
Cite at least one example from the Law, one from the Prophets, and one from the Writings. (Refer to the lecture content for specifics on the OT canon).
Part 4: Reflect on the significance of seeing the OT as an unfolding story. Conclude the assignment with an assessment of the importance of recognizing this narrative flow.
Submit your four-part assignment as a single file to the appropriate submission area.
