Reading: Genesis 11 v 1 – 9

Questions for study:

  • What struck you about what you heard? Was there anything you didn’t understand or agree with?
  • Genesis 10-11 deal with the development of national identity and language. Do you think the chapters are broadly positive or negative about the origins of nations and national identity? Why?
  • Paul wrote that Jesus’ purpose was ‘to create in himself one new humanity’ (Eph 2.15). As individuals, and a group with particular national identities in it, how could you reflect this purpose in daily life and in your group?
