Creation to 2000 B.C. – Beginnings of the World
God creates the universe, including the first couple, in 6 days. Everything is perfect. However, Adam and Eve were tempted by the devil and fall into sin. Immediately afterwards, God promises to send a savior. As the human race multiplies, people become more wicked. God sends a worldwide flood to destroy them. Only 8 members of Noah’s family survive in an ark (ship) that God directed them to build. Of Noah’s 3 sons, God selects Shem as an ancestor of the promised Savior.
