Zac Poonen – Bible Teacher
Well, we want to turn today to where we stopped yesterday. What we’re going to do is go through the whole Bible; we won’t be covering every chapter; that would take 500 sessions at least. But in fact, it’s easier to take 500 sessions; I would rather take 500. It’s more difficult to select that which contains the most essential message. So my burden has been to pick out that which is most essential.
The reason I spend more time in Genesis is because there’s a lot there which is very fundamental to our understanding of God — the way things began, and how just like when you see a tree, you know that all of that tree was in a small seed way back in the beginning.
And it’s something like that in Genesis: you have a seed there of everything that comes out later. We saw Cain; we saw Enoch — people who walked in two different ways. We saw Adam; we saw Noah — people who walked in two different ways.
