Yeah, mm no. Hi everybody and welcome to another episode of meditating in God's work. I am your host Darby Rose and today we are going to do a genesis recap, I hope you all are doing well today. Um I just want to go over A few narratives in the old testament. In Genesis. We just finished up genesis. It was a 39 lesson um, book and so we went through all the books. I have four books in each lesson and um I just want to highlight a few stories. I took an online poll on facebook and I asked everyone what was their favorite genesis story and I came back with a couple of responses.
Someone said the creation story. Was there favorite stories? Someone else said joseph was their favorite story. So we can familiarize ourselves with the text so we can understand now that we're coming into exodus, how we can set the scene in our mind for exodus. So, genesis we had um of course, like I said, the Creation story and the creation story is a beautiful story of how mankind came to enter into this world and it tells of Adam and Eve and their relationship with God and their relationship with each other as well. And then you go through CAIN and Abel and how they, you know, um had a bad ending, how CAin killed Abel in genesis. The second book um of my bible study uh you talk about Sodom and the more you talk about Sarah and Abraham um you talk about a lot of different stories. You also talk about Isaac and Rebecca and their marriage.
And then you talk about Abraham's descendants uh in genesis 25. And then in the third book of the genesis bible study series, you have Jacob. This book is primarily about Jacob at the end, you have Jacob's descendants esos descendants and then you have an interesting story uh interesting narrative that talks about Dinah's rape And that's such a powerful story because it tells how um the father did what he thought was best and the brothers did what they thought was best. Beautiful story, beautiful outcome in my opinion. Um that's in Genesis 34. And in the last book of genesis uh in the bible study series and meditating in God's word bible study series. You have joseph. Now this book primarily talks about joseph and how he um his brother's faked his death, how he rejected pharaoh's wife's um proposition how he went to jail, how he interpreted dreams from God.
And it also talks about his restoration in that process. So those four books Outlines the entire 50 chapters that was in Genesis. And so I hope you take a moment to go back read look um review before we get into exodus and if you have been following along for the beginning of genesis. Thank you. I appreciate it. And I know that you have grown leaps and bounds in your spiritual life if you've been following and reading the bible because that's what it does. It grows you in ways that you can imagine. And so this is not a lesson per se. But this is more of a genesis review or a recap so we can set the stage for exodus. Because exodus is a powerful book as well. Going from genesis to exodus. And I want to make sure you guys have a context and you follow along because it's so many stories in the bible. I want you all to make sure you are understanding the bible as simply as you can check out these stories.
