Welcome to our Weekly Bible Study. Each week we will study one Chapter of a Bible Study Book. We are going to start by studying Genesis: Book of Beginnings from the Book Series “Journey Through the Bible Book 1”. I hope you will join us each week as we “Journey” through Genesis to see what God has given us for that week. At the end of each study there will be some study questions for you to mull over during the week and if you can’t answer the questions we will give you our answers the following week.
This book (Genesis) is a Study Guide for the Book of Genesis in the Holy Bible. The Bible text used for the study is the King James Version (KJV). It is fitting that we should start with Genesis, which is the book of Beginnings. Genesis: The Book of Beginnings is the first book in this series of Journey Through the Bible.
