Watch BEYOND Pain. Reflect on your thoughts and feelings after the film has finished.
Read Genesis 3:1–24 and record your reflection and insights from this passage of the Bible.
What is the most painful part of this story for you?
In the midst of the garden of Eden was the ultimate landmine, a tree that gave humankind freedom of choice. Was this a good thing? (see Genesis 2:16-17)
What appealed to Eve and do we still desire these things? (see Genesis 3:6)
Throughout the Creation week, God said seven times it was ‘good’ but now Eve in Genesis 3:6 defines what is good. Is this significant now for a world that experiences pain? (see Genesis 3:6)
Reflect on the different responses in the story: God’s, Adam’s and Eve’s (see Genesis 3:7–24).
What ways can you and to whom can you reflect the image of God this week? (see Genesis 1:26)
