The Creation account is vital to Christians in that it gives us an explanation for our existence. The book of Genesis reveals God’s perfect process of creating the universe and more specifically, The Earth. God created everything, period. Write 2-3 sentences explaining what the fall reveals about humanity and human morality. The fall of man, initiated by Adam’s inability to resist Eve’s temptation to disobey God in the Garden, is paramount. Sin had not entered this world until that moment.

Write 2-3 sentences explaining the importance of God revealing Himself through covenants. The Covenants, New, and Old alike are God’s way of interacting and instructing His people in an Earthly and understandable way. They are contractual agreements.
