Lesson 20: Next Steps


Our journey through Genesis has now reached its end. A firm grasp of the Bible's first book is vital for a full and correct understanding of the Scriptures as a whole. Having completed your study of Genesis, you now have a solid foundation from which to explore the remaining pages of God's Word.

This lesson will look back at some of the things we have learned, and discuss next steps for Bible study and Christian growth.

The Seven Pillars of Genesis

Genesis introduces many significant characters, but seven individuals in particular clearly illustrate the Gospel message in story form. These men – Adam, Abel, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph – are Genesis' Seven Pillars. Their stories constitute the bulk of the Genesis narrative, each one presenting a different aspect of the Gospel and revealing God's plan for the salvation of the world.
