60IN60 Day 17 - Wed Sept 23

It's Day 17 and we're in Genesis 6.

Note that we skipped chapter 5.  It's mostly genealogical information.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Nothing really jumped out to me.  Genesis has been a struggle for me in that way.

- Verses 1-4 - The nature of the Nephilim is fairly obscure.  Some take it to be a reference to angels in human form; others take it to be a group of particularly strong and large people.

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.

Your Questions:
- "In listing the descendants of Cain........where did Cain's wife come from?  Was she a child of Adam and Eve?" - Yes, which is a little gross, but throughout Genesis we see a lot of relationships like this as the "people groups" are still pretty small.

Your Comments: 
- 'Comment from my Bible: "The story of humanity's sin begins with a tree and ends on a tree: the first, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; and finally, the cross on which Jesus dies.  The first tree offers fruit that leads to death, but the second offers a death that leads to eternal life."'
