The First 2000 Years of Biblical History

The first 2000 years of human history are found in the first 11 chapters of the bible. From Genesis 1 to Genesis 11, mankind speaks one language (Genesis 11:1) and God deals directly with ALL MANKIND.

2000 Years in 11 Chapters

God the Son creates the earth and everything in it, in six days and rest on the seventh day. (Genesis 1:1 – Genesis 2:1,2)

In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.

Genesis 1:1

The Fall

The Commandment

16 The Lord God commanded the man, saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; 17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.”

Genesis 2:16-17

The Fall

The Commandment

16 The Lord God commanded the man, saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; 17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.”

Genesis 2:16-17

The Lie

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, unless you die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, You shall not surely die:

Genesis 3:2-4

The Disobedience (The Fall)

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Genesis 3:6

Redemption

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.

Genesis 3:15

The moment Adam & Eve disobeyed God sin entered the world and everything God created was cursed. Every human being born since Cain is born with a sin nature or what Paul refers to in Romans 6:6 as “our Old Man“. This is why we sin because we are all born sons and daughters of Adam. (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:

Romans 5:12

“We are not sinners because we break God’s law… We sin because we are born sinners”

 

Mankind Continues to Disobey God

Moving on through the first 11 chapters Genesis we see God destroys mankind in the flood (Genesis 7) because of their wickedness (Genesis 6:5,6) and starts over with Noah and his family. It takes mankind a short couple of hundred years to disobey God again at the tower of Babel.

After God scatters mankind from the Tower of Babel by confusing their language. (Genesis 11:7,8) Just a short 200 years go by and again mankind turns his back on God. (Joshua 24:2)

 

God Makes a Change

The next 2000 years God does something completely different and chooses one man. (Nehemiah 9:7) Creates a race of people for Himself (Deuteronomy 7:6,7) and the Gentile world has no access to God for two thousand years. (Ephesians 2:11,12)
