Q & A - “God Creates the Family” – September 23, 2018

Family Not Possible: Genesis 2:18-20

1. What divine assessment is made concerning the existence of the man? (Genesis 2:18)

After seven evaluations of creation’s elements being “good,” we come to something that God says is not good: the solitary existence of the man. Man needs a wife who is a help.

We glean from this passage that God creates us to interact within a context of companionship and community of our own kind. This aspect of the human makeup also relates to the stated directives to multiply and replenish the earth. We do so as we relate to mutual benefit in a wider circle of family, friends, and humanity as a whole. Our quality of life is found in relationships.

The description “helper” establishes both the woman’s similarity to the man and her equality with him. The woman to be created will possess all the qualities of humanity and personhood that the man does and will likewise be distinct from every other animal or vegetable.

God intends humanity to see each other-not animals-as their true companions and equals. God will create animals for Adam to name, and point out that none of them are a suitable match for him.

The description of her as a helper to the man in no way diminishes her dignity or standing, for “help(er)” is a term also used to describe God in relation to people. The woman will be equal in personhood though complementarily opposite in her procreative role.

2. How did God make man different from animals that were also formed from the ground? (Genesis 2:19)

Genesis 2:19 narrates an additional, special act of creation undertaken for the purpose of presenting the animals for naming. The birds and the beasts were created before Adam, but Adam’s dominion over the animals is seen in verses 19 and 20; for it is the prerogative of a superior to give names to those under him.

Though the animals are formed out of the ground just as the man is, none of them is created in God’s image. By naming the animals, God allows the man assigns a function and place to each one, thereby exercising the ruling authority that bearers of the divine image possess. In the process of observing the animal world, Adam certainly recognizes that he is not like them; he undoubtedly realizes his superior nature.

3. What two observations did Adam make concerning God’s creation? (Genesis 2:20)

As God caused the animals to parade before Adam two things were accomplished. First, names were given to each of the animals (this implies discerning the character or nature of an object); and second, Adam saw with his own eyes that each of the animals of God’s creation was subhuman, inferior to him. More than likely they came before him in pairs, each with its mate. He, and he alone had been created in the image of God. He was unique, he was the only one of his kind (“no suitable helper”). God was preparing Adam psychologically for his helper.

“God Creates the Family” - Genesis 2:18–24; 4:1-2
• Background Scripture: Genesis 2:18–24; 4:1-2
• Devotional Reading: Leviticus 19:11–18


In Genesis 1, God gave function, order, and meaning to His creation. He consistently saw that His work was good. The pinnacle of His creative efforts was human beings, male and female, in His own image. The “image of God” entails a number of aspects, and among them is being granted dominion over the fish, birds, and all other animals, wild and domesticated. Though all life on earth is valuable, human life alone is sacred because of God’s image.

God also desires people to multiply to the ends of the earth. He created humans out of His goodness, not out of whim or necessity. It was a command! God desired humans to flourish, thrive, and give Him glory in abundance!


“Spouse Comes First”

God bestows on us many blessings and gifts, the best of which (after salvation through Jesus) is the capacity to have relationships. Aloneness is not good for us. Life is about relationships—with God and with each other. Relatives, friends, and acquaintances can partner with us in God’s work. Animals can provide meaningful company, but the marriage relationship stands above all.

God desires that humanity flourish through the marriage relationship. Procreation is never stated as a requirement for each and every marriage, nor is it the only purpose of marriage. But it is the means by which God has established that people fill the earth. The family unit is not only a precious social gift but also a means for teaching children and spreading God’s Word throughout the world.

God’s ideals for marriage are always under attack, and recent attempts to redefine marriage comprise but the latest example. Sinful humans are up to their old tricks again. To be sure, God has left much about marriage up to us. Prenuptial customs, wedding ceremonies, legal recognitions and benefits, and many other specifics may be determined (for better or worse) by one’s society, laws, and culture. But the male-female basis and the lifelong exclusive commitment are parameters set by God, not earthly powers.

The church must continue to uphold the biblical ideals for holy matrimony and to celebrate it as a gift from God. May those who enter into this most sacred of earthly unions remain faithful to their spouses and give glory to their Creator.

What Do You Think?

• What are some things that husbands, and wives can do to glorify God through their marriage?

“Digging Deeper”

Make your answer pointedly specific by (1) avoiding generalities such as “love each other” and (2) focusing on positive things to do, not sins to avoid doing.

NDBS Lesson 33 Part 1
God Creates The Family
Rev. Bernard Hayes


“God Creates the Family” - Genesis 2:18–24; 4:1-2
• Background Scripture: Genesis 2:18–24; 4:1-2
• Devotional Reading: Leviticus 19:11–18

Genesis 2:18-24 (NIV)

18. The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
19. Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.
20. So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.
But for Adam no suitable helper was found.
21. So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh.
22. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.
24. That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

Genesis 4:1-2

1. Adam made love to his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, “With the help of the LORD I have brought forth a man.”
2. Later she gave birth to his brother Abel. Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil.


• Learning Fact: To describe the situation that led to the creation of woman.

• Biblical Principle: To explain God’s plan for the family in His creation of man and woman.

• Daily Application: To honor God by honoring members of your family that God has given you as a relationship blessing.


From Matrimony to Multiplication

Few occasions in life bring as much joy and hope as a wedding. Especially with a close-up view, the sense of wonder, love, and anticipation is palpable. In these extraordinary moments, bride and groom become a new family; and in most weddings the potential for children to expand the family only enhances the excitement.

God commanded humankind to “be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth” (Genesis 1:28), and by all indications people have accepted the challenge. After topping 1 billion sometime in the early 1800s, the human population has risen seven times that amount in the ensuing 200 years. According to the 2015 United Nations’ official projections, the world population will grow to 8.5 billion in 2030 and 9.7 billion in 2050.

If He had so chosen, God could have created billions of people to fill the earth from the start. But His mode of operation is to use human beings to partner in His plans. So in remote antiquity, God created a man and a woman. The result was a family to get those plans going.

“The First Man”
Background Scripture: Genesis 1:26–31, 4:2-7
Devotional Reading: Psalm 103:1–5, 11–14

Life for the First Human: Genesis 2:4–7

The intervening text not included in the lesson text summarizes what God does on the seventh day: nothing! He rests from His work.

4. What did Moses mean by “account of the heavens” (Genesis 2:4)?

The term account of the heavens actually is better rendered as “histories of.” Here (Gen. 2:4-7) Moses tells the same Creation story but adds details that we need to know in order to understand events that happen later. Verse 4 is the first of eleven “account” statements that mark the progress of the story Moses wrote in the Book of Genesis.

In verse 5, it appears that God created everything, not only perfect as it respects its nature, but also in a state of maturity, so that every vegetable production appeared at once in full growth; and this was necessary that man, when he came into being, might find everything ready for his use.

5. What additional details does Genesis 2 give for the watering of the earth and man’s creation? (Genesis 2:6-7)

The exact nature of the mist that rises from the earth is unclear. However, as Moses had said, Genesis 2:5, that the Lord had not caused it to rain upon the earth, he probably designed to teach us, in Genesis 2:6, how rain is produced. Perhaps the streams (“mist” KJV) is condensation of the aqueous vapors (“mist)”, which are generally through the heat of the sun and other causes raised to a considerable height (the term “came up”) in the atmosphere, where, meeting with cold air, the watery particles which were before so small and light that they could float in the air, becoming condensed, i.e., many drops being driven into one, become too heavy to be any longer suspended, and then, through their own gravity, fall down and water “the whole surface of the ground” in the form which we term rain.

Finally, in the most distinct manner God shows us that man is a compound being, having a body and soul distinctly, and separately created; the body out of the dust of the earth, the soul immediately breathed from God himself. Does not this strongly mark that the soul and body are not the same thing? The body derives its origin from the earth, the dust; hence because it is earthly it is decomposable and perishable. Of the soul it is said, God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; ‏expanded the lungs and set them in play, His inspiration gave both spirit and understanding.


Live up to the meaning of Romans 8:29 (“For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters”).
Discussion of Dispensations: The word means an administration, a stewardship, or guardianship. It refers to a moral or probationary period in angelic or human history, during which time God deals with angels, or men, according to a particular test or responsibility, under which each is supposed to remain true to his trust of administering affairs for God under His direction.
There are 9 features of each dispensation:
1. Definition or name
2. Length of time
3. Favorable beginning
4. Test for responsible agent
5. Purpose of God in each one
6. Means of God in accomplishing His purpose
7. Failure of responsible agent
8. Judgment of God on responsible agent
9. God’s provision of reconciliation for fallen agents.

Questions to Ponder
What Are Angels?
Can Angels Fall Away From God?
Do I Have a Guardian Angel?
Do We Become Angels When We Die?
What Can We Learn From Angels?

“The First Man”
Background Scripture: Genesis 1:26–31, 4:2-7
Devotional Reading: Psalm 103:1–5, 11–14
Male and female were also blessed by God and commanded to “Be fruitful and increase in number.” God’s blessing-command spoken over humanity reflects what He has already spoken over creatures of sea and sky (Genesis 1:22). It resembles a number of other fruitfulness-blessing statements found throughout this book (9:1, 7; 17:20; 28:3; 35:11; 48:4). Together these demonstrate that rearing children is an integral part of God’s plan for humanity. God desires that the whole earth be inhabited (Isaiah 45:18) and experience His glory (40:5; 42:10–13).

Man was also commanded to “subdue” the earth with suggests that the focus is the idea of control. Those who are granted this control are, naturally, accountable to God for stewardship in ordering and developing the resources available. This implies a degree of sovereignty, control, and direction over nature (c.f. Psalm 8:6). With the fall of man in chapter 3 came a curse upon the ground and the animal kingdom; thus, man’s control is not what Adam’s was before his sin.

The extent to which we are able to exercise this dominion is now limited because of sin. However, Christ, who is the image of the invisible God (2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15), has come as the last Adam to achieve dominion (1 Corinthians 15:22, 45–49; compare Hebrews 2:5–18). In Him we have put on the new self and are growing into the image and likeness of God (Colossians 1:15; 3:9-10).

What Do You Think?

What steps should you take to determine your responsibilities in the stewardship of God’s creation?

3. What provisions did God make for both man and animals? (Genesis 1:29-31)

The repetition of every highlights the fact that God is the faithful and generous provider of sustenance to both man and animals. Humans will eat from seed-bearing plants and fruit trees, and animals will consume every green plant. After the flood, people will receive authority from God to eat animal flesh as well (Genesis 9:3), a new source of protein.

Both Adam and the animal creation were vegetarians until after the Flood (Gen. 1:29-30; 9:1-4). Isaiah 11:7 indicates that the carnivorous beasts will return to this diet when Jesus Christ returns and established His kingdom on earth.

God had previously assessed elements of creation as “good” (Genesis 1:4, 10, 12, 18, 21, 25). He now evaluates His creation in light of the addition of humanity, and He pronounces it very good (1:31). This serves to express God’s excitement and invites the reader also to view creation from God’s perspective. Creation, before the intrusion of human sin in Genesis 3, fully reflected God’s intent.

What Do You Think?
How will awareness of God’s generosity result in one specific change in the way you live?
