But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,

The following is an overview of the first 2000 years of Biblical and human history. God deals with all mankind directly and all mankind speaks one language. There is no written law, no temple worship instead God provides mankind simple instructions to both live out their daily lives and how to worship Him.


4000 B.C. – 2000 B.C.


The first two thousand years of Biblical and human history are recorded in the first 11 chapters of Genesis.


Creation, God created man, the fall – sin and the curse come on the scene, Satan takes dominion of the planet, the Redeemer, the flood, the earth repopulated and the tower of Babel.


Rightly divide the Word of God


Outline of First 2000 Years of Biblical History


  1. Creation – Genesis 1: 2:1-4.
  2. God created man – Genesis 1:26-27.
  3. The Fall (Sin and the Curse) – Genesis 3:4-7
  4. Satan takes dominion of the planet – Matthew 4:8-9; 2 Corinthians 4:4
  5. The Redeemer – 3:15
  6. The Wickedness of Man and the Flood – Genesis 6 & 7.
  7. Noahic Covenant for All mankind/Human Government – Genesis 6.18, 9.9-17
  8. Noah & his sons Shem, Ham, and Japeth populate the earth – Genesis 9
  9. The Tower of Babel – Genesis 11.



We Must Know


To be a good Bible student we must “KNOW” (and we can know) how these first eleven chapters of Biblical History apply to our lives today as grace age believers? 


  • Is there Doctrine for the body of Christ, in the first 11 Chapters?
  • Is there a message of salvation “the gospel” for “us” today in these first eleven chapters?
  • Are there commands that we must follow in the first eleven chapters of Genesis?


To repeat these first two thousand years of Biblical history are recorded in just the first 11 chapters in the book of Genesis.


Moving ahead 200 years from the Tower of Babel and we find that God makes a massive change on how He will reveal Himself to mankind. When He calls out one man…Abram or Abraham as we know him now, to start a people for His name, the Jewish people.

Study Scripture Don’t Just Read It


Most difficulties in interpreting the Scriptures occur from neglecting a passage’s context. The guiding principle of sound interpretation is taking passage literally unless strong and clear reasons exist for not doing so.

Not sticking to this discipline, interpreting the Scripture becomes whatever you want it to mean. The result is erroneous or ridiculous interpretations.

We can know these answers by asking the following questions;

  • Who is the author and who is the author writing too?
  • When did the events happen as a “time element”?
  • When was it written? (date)
  • What are the circumstances?
  • What came before and what happened after?
  • What has God revealed? (reading in-time, not to get ahead of what God has revealed. In other words, read Genesis 1 – 11, as it was happening at that time and know nothing of future events on what God has revealed at THAT TIME!!!)

By asking the questions above, comparing Scripture with Scripture, and reading the first eleven chapters of Genesis in-time we can establish context. “know” how to apply the first eleven chapters of Genesis to our Christian walk. And yes we can make application

Thank you for reading.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don't have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '

Romans 10:9
