I hope you enjoyed Lesson Two Part One of the Basic Bible Truths Series. So, each of these lessons also had questions associated with them and then some answers by my Grandpa Cecil the author. These questions help you to think through the lesson you’ve read and learned from to test your knowledge and also provide a tool for deeper reflection. I’ve added my own answer to any personal question asked. Enjoy! Let me know what you learned and how this lesson has helped you!

I hope you enjoyed this first part of Lesson 2. Part 2 of this lesson will be available soon. Then we will move on to lesson 3 which starts a short series on the attributes of God.
