• Garden of Eden God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden
when he made them in his image. The Bible doesn’t tell us exactly
where Eden was located, except for a few clues that are difficult to
decipher in Genesis 2:10-14.
• Mountains of Ararat After the great Flood, Noah’s boat came to rest
on the mountains of Ararat, in modern-day Turkey (8:4). From here his
sons and their descendants spread out to build new nations.
• Babel The tower of Babel was built in the fertile area between the
Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, within the region of modern-day Iraq (11:2).
• Ur of the Chaldeans Abram, a descendant of Shem and father of the
Hebrew nation, was born in this great city (11:27-28).
• Haran Terah, Abram, Sarai, and Lot left Ur and, following the fertile
crescent of the Euphrates River, headed toward the land of Canaan.
Along the way, they settled in the village of Haran for a while (11:31).
• Shechem God urged Abram to leave Haran and go to a place where
he would become the father of a great nation (12:1-2). So Abram,
Sarai, and Lot traveled to the land of Canaan and settled near a city
called Shechem (12:6).
• Hebron Abraham moved on to Hebron, where he put down his deepest
roots (13:18). Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob all lived and were buried here.
• Beersheba The well at Beersheba was a source of conflict between
Abraham and King Abimelech and later became a sign of the oath that
they swore here (21:31). Years later, as Isaac was moving from place to
place, God appeared to him here and passed on to him the covenant
he had made with his father, Abraham (26:23-25).
• Bethel After deceiving his father, Jacob left Beersheba and fled to
Haran. Along the way, God revealed himself to Jacob in a dream
and passed on the covenant he had made with Abraham and Isaac
(28:10-22). Jacob lived in Haran, worked for Laban, and married Leah
and Rachel (29:15-30). After a tense meeting with his brother, Esau,
Jacob returned to Bethel (35:1).
• Egypt Jacob had 12 sons, including Joseph, Jacob’s favorite. Joseph’s
ten older brothers grew jealous, and then one

We sometimes wonder how our world came to be. But here we find the answer. God created the earth andapplication note.
everything in it and made humans like himself. Although we may not understand the complexity of just how he
did it, it is clear that God did create all life. This shows not only God’s authority over humanity but also his deep
love for all people.
The Account of Creation
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.* 2The earth was formless
and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
