Various theories exist about how humans came into existence and about the purpose, if any, for human life. Is there a reason for us being on earth? Or, as evolution would like us to believe, did we come into existence by pure coincidence? If that were the case, we might as well eat and drink for tomorrow we die. This lesson shows from the Bible the fantastic potential we have from God-not only now, but for all eternity.

What's Inside

Biologically, we begin with man as a living organism.

Our modern civilization is ill-suited to meet the deep-seated spiritual needs of its inhabitants.

The book of Genesis tells us that God created man in His own image, forming man from the dust of the earth and breathing into his nostrils the breath of life (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:7).

What is man? Few today have an adequate answer to this enormously significant question.

Because of the crucial role Jesus plays in the destiny of mankind, it is essential that we understand His humanity.

Jesus Christ is called "the Son of Man" more than 80 times in the Bible. It was the term he most commonly used in referring to Himself. Whether in Aramaic (which Jesus spoke), Greek or Hebrew, the expression means an ordinary man.

The image of God can be renewed in human beings only through the living presence of Jesus Christ in their lives

God is a God of mercy. He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked and often delays His judgments in the hope of repentance.

The Bible clearly show that Jesus will return here to earth and rule the nations with His saints.

It is important for us to learn about God the Father, His nature and character.

Salvation in God's Kingdom is the ultimate purpose of your life.
