I thought you might enjoy some questions from our Wednesday night children's class. Last week the children could answer these questions by the end of their class time, and did so in front of the church.
1. What is the first book in the Bible?
2. What does the word Genesis mean?
3. In how many days did God create the heaven and the earth?
4. For what simple scientific reason must we understand creation to be in 6, 24 hour days, and NOT long time periods--like 1,000 years is as a day and a day as a thousand years?
5. What did God do on the seventh day of creation?
6. What principle did God show us on day seven?
This week the children could answer the following questions by the end of the class, added to last week's questions.
1. In Genesis 1:26 we read: "And God said...." What Hebrew word is used for God?
2. Is the Hebrew word, Elohim, singular, meaning one, or plural, meaning more than one?
3. In Deuteronomy 6:4 we read, "Hear oh Israel: the LORD our God is one LORD...." What is the Hebrew word used here for God?
4. What is interesting about using Elohim in Deuteronomy 6:4?
5. What are we getting a glimpse of here?
6. What is Deuteronomy 6:4 called?
7. How did it get its name?
8. In Genesis 1:26 we read, "And God said, 'Let us make man in our image...." Why would one God say "let US" and "in OUR" when speaking to himself?
