Pictures of Jesus in Genesis Page 5

August 21, 2016

So far we’ve covered 4 pictures of Jesus in our album!

The first week…one of my favorites…we saw how Jesus was there in the beginning when God created the earth. Skeptical? I don’t mind…read this: Here

Week 2 we read about God’s creation and the first thing he did was to create Light. And we know Jesus said HE is the light of the  world…so we have another glimpse of Jesus right at the beginning of creation. Read this and I’ll fill you in: Here

The next week was the first wedding and how Adams relationship with Eve is a portrait of Christ and the church. The most beautiful wedding photos ever:  Here

And last week, we saw the picture of Eve’s being deceived and her husband lowering himself to her level, in order to save her. Here

Brilliant pictures for us…but maybe not so brilliant for those who had no New Testament to compare them with. Still, they’re there. And as we unfold the dusty pages of our album today, we will see what God did as a result of their sin.

As soon as Adam and Eve’s eyes were opened, they knew they were naked and covered themselves with fig leaves. God had said, In the day you eat of the tree you will surely die.”

Before the day ended, in the cool of the evening, God came to visit them.

What do we know about Eden? We know it was perfect, it was lush, it was a place of complete relaxation, no worries, nothing to fear… a place to live…and it belonged to Adam and Eve. Paradise. That’s the word for it. Their every day was Paradise.

But an intruder came into their perfect life and they both fell into sin. Well, they didn’t fall into anything…they chose to believe a lie. And because of them,  death entered the world.

 

This is a picture of all of us. Banished.

    God knew what Adam and Eve would do before they did it. That is why he prepared a way for us to be saved. I don’t think he would have sent them to earth for failure, he always provides a way back.

      You’re right,, Julie. Last week I had this for page 4 of this series… “The second thing that strikes me is: God knew man would eat of the tree because he said…”when you do”…not “if” you do… Which furthermore verifies that God’s plan of redemption was set in place before creation. And we know from the first ‘photo’ in the album that Jesus was there in the beginning, at Creation.”…I am amazed. Thank you for commenting.

    Selfishness and self-absorbed behaviors go all the way back to Genesis. Sadly, they are often the cause of breakdowns within the family as one person’s behavior causes ripple effects on all the others around them.
