Read through the chapter and then go over it again and write out what you notice in your notebook. The first challenge is experimenting with bible journaling. You can use the following to guide you if you wish. If you don’t like drawing, then just write out the words in appropriate sizes or shapes.
- Draw the snake in the tree and in a speech bubble write out what he told the woman in verses 4 and 5.
- Draw the woman and in a bubble above her head write out the three things she thought before she took the fruit.
This is a question that we still deal with today – do we want to be our own gods or are we willing to submit to another authority?
- Draw the fruit with bites taken out…
- Draw the man and the woman. They each admitted their guilt when questioned by God, but what were the different reasons they gave for eating the forbidden fruit?
- Leave a bit of space and then draw the snake on the ground and write out what God said would be it’s fate.
- Genesis 3:15 is a promise. Write it out and draw a frame around it.
- Write out the consequences of Eve’s disobedience under the woman and the consequences of Adam’s disobedience under the man.
- Draw the animal skin coverings on the man and woman.
- The consequence of eating from the tree of knowledge was death. The tree of life would no longer be available to them. Write along the bottom of your page what God did to them in verse 24.
- Draw the flaming sword and write along it what it’s purpose was.
