Genesis - Part 51

Genesis - Part 51

The lesson on April 19, 2020 was part 51 of the "Genesis" study  We moved through chapter 12 which brought us the the birth of the nation Israel.  From Genesis 1 thru 11, we have learned of the nations being all Gentile.  We learned of Noah's three sons and the birth of their descendants.  In that, we looked at the sin of Ham and the curse put upon Canaan of servitude.  This involved nakedness and the impact that it has on you.  It is much different than what we saw in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve were naked and not ashamed.  Once they became sinners, nakedness was now a big issue because there were several examples provided how that as not good.  We went through the tower of Babel and learned that the languages we put in place to keep the nations separate because if you don't speak the same language, it is much harder to work together.  The scripture reading was from Genesis 11:1-9 KJV

"1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth."
