Read Genesis 1-50
I hope you have enjoyed our long walk through the book of Genesis – almost as long as Abraham’s and Jacob’s wanderings! – and our study of the women who people this great story of Israel’s history from Creation to Egypt.
Today, we’re going to be wrapping up by looking at some of the broader themes and topics in Genesis. You may want to look back over your notes, or previous lessons, all of which are linked above.
Our next study will be a topical study of the Scriptures dealing with biblical womanhood. We’ll be having another fun title pic contest prior to the start of the study. I’ll have the exact title of the study and all the other details here for you next Wednesday (September 5), so get those creative juices flowing and pass the word to any artsy friends who might be interested!
Questions to Consider
1. What is the overall theme or purpose of the book of Genesis? Which attribute(s) of God does Genesis point to?
2. Make a list of each of the women we studied in this book. In what way did each of them contribute to moving the theme or purpose of Genesis forward?
3. What are some godly attributes of the women we studied that you aspire to in your walk with the Lord?
4. What are some ungodly attributes of the women we studied that God showed you were present in your own life? What are some ways you can mortify those sins and avoid those ungodly attitudes and actions in the future?
5. Which “Woman of Genesis” did you learn the most from, and why?
6. List three attributes of God that you learned about in this study.
7. What are the three major covenants in Genesis? Explain how each of them affected the person (and his family) it was given to and how each covenant points ahead to Christ.
8. All of the action in Genesis took place before God gave the Law (in Exodus, Leviticus, etc.). What are some specific incidents in Genesis that demonstrate that God’s moral law is transcendent (i.e. that the rules of morality – intrinsically good and bad behavior/attitudes – are universal. They applied before God gave Israel the Law and still apply now that Christ has fulfilled the Law – to everyone, everywhere.)?
9. What are the major historical events of Genesis?
10. What did you learn from this study about ancient Middle Eastern cultural practices, especially those that impacted the life of women?
11. In what ways is the book of Genesis an introduction and background to the book of Exodus?
Thanks again for studying The Women of Genesis. I hope it was as much of a blessing to you as it was to me! For more studies and resources on how to study the Bible for yourself, please click the “Bible Studies” tab at the top of this page.

I have been trying to start your Bible Study and when I click on the link I get this message: Welcome to

I’m so sorry. I recently canceled my old domain, and I have a bunch of broken links I need to go back and fix, but I’m gearing up for a women’s conference I’m speaking at next week and haven’t had a chance to tackle that task yet. I’m guessing what you did was to click on the “Women of Genesis” (WoG) link at the Bible Studies tab at the top of the blog? If that’s what you did, there are 2 ways to get to the lesson you’re looking for until I get those links fixed.
1. When you click on the WoG link, it takes you to all the lessons, but they’re in reverse order (last one first). You can scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “older posts” at the bottom of the page until you get to the lesson you’re looking for.
2. You can look at the “previous lessons” section at the beginning of lesson 36 (the top post when you click on the WoG link) and click on the number of the lesson you want to go to. When you do that, you’ll get the error message you described, but if you’ll go up to your browser bar and simply delete the word “books” from the web address (so it says “michellelesley.com” instead of “michellelesleybooks.com” at the beginning) it will take you right to the lesson you’re looking for.
I’m so sorry for the inconvenience, and I promise I’ll get those links fixed as soon as I can.
That you for getting back to me Michelle, enjoy your conference. God bless!!!
You’re welcome. Thanks! :0)
