90 Day Challenge Day 1

Read Genesis 1-16.


  • 1-2 Creation Story
  • 3 Fall
  • 4 Cain and Abel
  • 6-8 Noah and the flood
  • 9 Covenant with Noah
  • 11 Tower of Babel
  • 12 Covenant w/ Abram
  • 13 Abram & Lot
  • 14 Melchizedek
  • 15 Covenant w/ Abram
  • 16 Sarai and Hagar

Genesis 1-11 should be viewed as a unit.  The major theme here is creation and fall.  As we look at a plot development in the story of Genesis this should be seen as laying out the problem.  The problem with humanity is sin, it is expressed repeatedly here in these chapters,  the appropriate response is judgment (the flood).

Genesis 12 begins the second major part of the book, that is, the solution.  The solution is expressed in the covenant promises made to Abram/Abraham.

  1. I feel as if I am running a marathon…not that I have ever done that. I am used to meditating on what I read in the Bible. Frank says to just do it (read the “assignment”) and see what happens.

  2. Hey Carol,
    A lot of people have expressed the same thing. Funny, I have been telling them the same thing as Frank!

    I am finding some different impressions by simply reading a large chunk at a time. Especially with Genesis it has been fun to see the broader themes.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes. 

SBK Productions is your online source for Homeschooling Resources and Art History Curriculum. She also offers several unique devotionals which incorporate Art History with the Church Calendar. Check out her upcoming Christmas Devotional series which would work for individuals, families, small groups, and churches.

Other churches have chosen  a middle ground approach: modified meetings in public. Others have chosen to simply meet.  Surrounding the challenges and variations  of Sunday
