Understanding Bible Christianity

Lesson 2 

The Designer of Life: God Creates All Living Things



In the last lesson, we learned some basic facts about the Bible. If God thought it was important enough to speak to man and make sure that holy men wrote down his words, how much more important is it that we should read and believe them?



1.   Heaven is God’s ____________, and earth is his _______________. God cannot be limited by a building or a place. His presence is everywhere. He sees and knows everything. God has the ability to do anything he wants to do!

Acts 7:48,49 – “Howbeit the most High [God] dwelleth not in temples made with hands; …, Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: …”  


2.   What did God do in the beginning of the world? ____________

Genesis 1:6 - And God said, Let there be a firmament [sky] in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.


5.   On day 3, God separated the dry land from the __________. He made plants and fruit. Inside all plants, there is a seed, that it may reproduce itself. 

Genesis 1:9 - And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry landappear: and it was so.


6.  On day 4, God made the sun, the moon, the stars to give light upon the ________. This is how we can measure our days, seasons, and years. 

Genesis 1:15 - And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

Genesis 1:21 - And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl [bird] after his kind: and God saw that it was good.


      On day 6, God made the animals. 


Genesis 1:24 - And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 



8. Finally, we learn that God made _________, the most special of all his creation. God said, “Let ____ make man in ______ image.” 

Genesis 1:26 - And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.


Man in God’s Image

God referred to himself in the plural form, though he is one God. The word for God in the Hebrew is Elohim. This is a singular name with a plural ending. This is why we say God is one in three persons. The Triune God is the Father, the Word (Son Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. Each person of the Trinity has a unique purpose.    

  • God the Father is the one who plans the work. 
  • God the Son performs the work.
  • God the Holy Spirit influences the work.


9. There are _________ that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are ________.

I John 5:7 - For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.


10. List the three parts of man:1) _______ 2) _______ 3) ________

I Thessalonians 5:23 – “… I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless…”

*Man has three parts to his being, just as God has three parts to His existence. This is what makes man unique in all of creation.


-       Man has a body by which he has self-awareness. Man has five senses (taste, touch, smell, sight, and sound) 

-       Man has a soul by which he has others-awareness. Man’s soul is composed of his intellect,      emotions, and will.

-       Man has a spirit by which he has God-awareness. He has the breath of life on earth and an eternal existence. 


11. God took some dust from the ground and formed a man. Then he and breathed into his nose and man became a living __________. 

Genesis 2:7- And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils [nose] the breath of life; and man became a living soul.


12. God called the first man Adam, which means “red” like mud. He was given ____________over all the fish, the birds, and the cattle. 

Genesis 1:27,28 - So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.


13. God had made a garden for Adam, which was called ________________. 

Genesis 2:8 - And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.


14. In this garden, there were two special trees: one that would give life and another that would give knowledge of _____________ and _____________. 

Genesis 2:9 - And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 


15. God gave Adam one rule, to not eat of the tree that gives knowledge of good and evil. What would be the punishment if he disobeyed? ______________________________                  

Genesis 2:17– But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


16. What did God say man needed? ______________ After naming the animals, God put Adam to sleep.

Genesis 2:18-20 - And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought themunto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet [helper] for him.


17. What bone did God take from Adam to make a woman? ______________

Genesis 2:21,22 - And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

Genesis 1:31 - And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.


19. God made an end of all his _________ and rested the seventh day. 

Genesis 2:1,2 - Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.


20. What does God’s creation shows us about God? _____________

Psalm 19:1 - The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

The greatest evidence that there is a Creator is found in creation itself. Intelligent design surrounds all of us. Everything living has a complex design. Every plant, animal, and person is made to heal, reproduce, and serve a specific purpose. Everything brings glory to God when it fulfills its unique role in creation.


21. Creation shows us that  _________ is the owner and ruler over everything. 

Psalm 24:1 - The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.– 


God is the rightful ruler over all the earth. Since he is the Creator, He has the authority to make the rules. We will learn in the next lesson where good and evil came from. We will discover the answers to the following questions: What are the consequences of sin? Why is there so much suffering and death on earth?
