Final ExamGenesis 2:4-25The intent of the author is to outline the creation of the heavens and the earth. It was explained that before the creations, there was nothing. Details are given of the origin and the order in which everything was created and formed. The author explains how all things were created in 6 days. According to the scholars, this passage focuses on the centrality of humanity and its relationship within the Lord’s world. There are productive and positive relationships with the Lord, creation and between men and women. In this reading, I interpret God as saying that He is the creator of everything between the heavensand the earth. Obey his rules of goodness and obedience, and all will be ok. He is looking for obedience to Him for a good relationship.To the 21stcentury Genesis 2:4-25 can apply the story of creation and apply it to how humanity should be lived out. If today’s society would follow the basic principles in preserving and enhancing the Lord’s creations, then we all would benefit from peace. Exodus 3:4-22As Moses approached a burning bush the voice of God spoke to him and informed him that He was aware of the sufferings of His people in Egypt. God then informed Moses that he was chosen to lead His people out of Egypt. Moses gave all kind of excuses as to why he could not bethe chosen deliver but God finally convinced Moses. He sent Aaron as his mouthpiece. He also revealed to Moses that His name was "I AM." Based on research, scholars are indicating that God is holding to the promise that He made to Abraham of delivering his chosen people from bondage. In this passage, God is saying to me that he holds to his promises. Although it took years to be fulfilled, the promise to deliver His people was fulfilled.In the 21sth century, Exodus can be related to the fact that just as He delivered the Hebrew people; the Jews from the Holocaust; and the Black Race from slavery; He is constantly delivering you and me from life’s perils and oppressions.
Deuteronomy 6:1-19The intent of the author in this passage is to convey the commandments that the Lord is instillingupon the people as the move onto their new land that was promised to them. The scholars indicate that the Lord is laying out the laws to His people, after they have been saved from bondage and provided the land of abundance that was provided to their ancestors.I interpret this passage to say that as long as one obeys and follows the commandments, prosperity is given in return. Learn and teach the commandments to your family and give the Lord your whole heart in the aspect of loyalty and obedience.
