Paradoxes in the Bible – Multiply and Fill the Earth

Bible Paradoxes 1. Multiply and fill the earth: The first commandment and a paradox at the same time. Why? 2. Jesus on the Cross: How can habits stop our spiritual growth? The image shows three women who felt compassion towards Jesus suffering on the cross. What do we think when we see this sign?
By Cobbin, Ingram, 1777-1851;March, Daniel, 1816-1909;Brockett, L. P. (Linus Pierpont), 1820-1893;Stretton, Hesba, 1832-1911

Multiply and Fill the Earth

This video is about Bible paradoxes and making babies. We will look at the very first commandment in Genesis “Make children and fill the earth” and discuss what it can mean, and why it is a paradox.

It is also about how habits can stop your spiritual growth. For example, whenever you see Jesus on the cross, do you mindlessly repeat some ceremony like a prayer or making the cross sign, or do you stop to think what Jesus did for us? Do you feel compassion for him, for what he had to suffer in his last days on earth?

Too often we forget that the Bible tells us stories about real people, people who had emotions, fears, people who suffered great pains. Can we learn to practice compassion when we read these stories?
