Last week we looked at how God created our world and this week we want to think about the first man and woman, Adam and Eve.
We will watch God Made Man and Woman on U tube.
Then we will discuss what happened in the video clip.
What was the garden called? Garden of Eden
What did God use to make the first man? The dust from the ground
What did he call the first man? Adam
What was Adam's role in the garden? To look after it and the animals (he named the animals). Everything in the garden was good and perfect. Adam could talk to God.
Why did God make a Woman? As a friend for Adam
What was the tree called that God told Adam and Eve not to touch? Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil
What would happen if they did touch it? They would die (Sin would come into the world which would mean everything would in time die)
What did the devil use to trick Eve? He spoke through a serpent/snake and lied to her.
Did Adam and Eve believe the trick? Yes and so they took the fruit and ate it.
Why was God sad with them? They had disobeyed God, they had sinned and so they could no longer live in the garden with God. Things would no longer be perfect and they would have to work hard to grow food and live.
Is that the end of the story? No, God promised a saviour (Jesus) who would create a way for us to have a relationship with God again.
Let’s pray and thank God for sending Jesus as the Saviour.
Prayer: Dear God,
Thank you that you made us!
Thank you that you love us!
Thank you that you sent Jesus to be our Savior!
I love the illustrations in the story 'Paper Dolls' by Julia Donaldson. As we have considered how God made man and woman I thought we could design our own paper people.
These templates were made for the 'Paper dolls' book and can be found online.
