The Quest for Holiness: The Origin and Nature of Sin

  1. 1. Bible Study Lesson #1: “In the Pursuit of the Holy God:” ―The Origin and Nature of Sin‖ Presented by Gayle Dancy-Benjamin Sept. 4, 2013
  2. 2.  Man’s relationship with God, the Father, the Holy One – Eloyhim--began at the beginning— in Genesis!  This relationship is illustrated in the Old Testament by the Theophany-(Greek)- the visible manifestation of God to man.
  3. 3. God Created Man Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (KJV) Gen. 1:26: “And God said, “Let US make man in our image after our likeness…” (KJV)
  4. 4. God Created Man Gen. 1:27: “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him: male and female created He them.” (KJV)… “and man became a living soul.” Gen. 2: 7 (KJV)
  5. 5. The Serpent Challenges God’s Commands Gen. 3:1 “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Gen. 3:2: … “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
  6. 6. The Serpent Challenges God Commands Gen. 3:3: “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.” (KJV) Gen. 3: 4: “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:” (KJV)
  7. 7. Eve is Beguiled by the Serpent Gen. 3:5: “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” (KJV)
  8. 8. Eve is Beguiled by the Serpent Gen. 3:6: Eve allowed the serpent to beguile her and she ate the fruit of the “The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the midst of the Garden of Eden. Eve gave it to Adam and he did eat. (Paraphrase)
  9. 9. SIN ENTERS THE WORLD **At that very moment in time the SIN of Disobedience entered into the world and Sin was extended to All mankind.**
  10. 10. Adam Makes Excuses Gen. 3:9: “And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, „Where art thou?‟ and he said: I heard thy voice in the garden and I was afraid, because I was naked and I hid myself.” (KJV)
  11. 11. Adam Makes Excuses Gen. 3: 10-12: First, God asked Adam if he ate of the Tree of Knowledge of God and Evil, and Adam responded that, “The Woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.” (Paraphrase)
  12. 12. Eve Made Excuses Gen. 3:13: When the Lord asked Eve, “What is this that thou hast done?” Eve responded: „the serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.‟ (Paraphrase) Then the Lord imposed the punishment for all three of the participants in this act of disobedience:
  13. 13. God Imposes Punishment Gen. 3:14: “And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:” (KJV)
  14. 14. God Imposes Punishment Gen. 3:15: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” (KJV)
  15. 15. Jesus, the Atonement for Our Sins **Gen 3:15 is a direct reference to Jesus, who would be the redemptive sacrifice to save all mankind from sin!**
  16. 16. Consequences of the Sin of Disobedience Gen. 3:16-24: The women would have “sorrow during childbirth” and the man would have to eat “by the sweat of his face.”
  17. 17. Consequences of the Sin of Disobedience God sent Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden so that they could not eat of the Tree of Life and therefore live forever. God placed “Cherubims and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.” (Paraphrase)
  18. 18. The Final Analysis: **The summation of Genesis 3 is found in Romans 5:12: “Wherefore, as by ONE man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so DEATH passed upon ALL MEN, for that ALL have SINNED:” (KJV)
  19. 19. “Why is a Quest for Holiness Needed?” WE need to return to the close relationship that man had with God in the beginning. “The Quest for Holiness for the Children of God” is vital, it is crucial, it is very essential, and it is critical as the Lord prepares His People for His IMMINENT RETURN!
