A Picture of Paradise | Genesis 2:4-17
Genesis 2 describes in detail God’s work on the sixth day when He created man and placed Him in “the garden of the Lord” (Is 51:3) in Eden. The narrative describes what like is life apart from the influence and effects of sin; a picture of what life should have been. But when we place the Garden of Eden against the rest of Scripture, we understand what life will ultimately be like through Jesus Christ when He comes and restores everything. In this study we learn that Paradise is a place free from sin where we know, serve and worship God under His sovereign care.
- Paradise is a place created by God
- Paradise is a place where God and man relate
