What is the first question, in the Bible, asked of God by Man? And God doesn't answer.
Some people think the rest of the bible is the answer. Your thoughts please.
The first question in the old Testament is "hath God said, 'Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden'?"
The second question is, 'Adam ... Where art thou?"
The third question is, "Who told thee that thou [wast] naked?"
The fouth question is, "Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?["/COLOR]
The fifth question is, "What [is] this [that] thou hast done?"
The sixth, seventh, and eight questions are, [COLOR=Red]"Why art thou wroth? Why is thy countenance fallen? and "If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted?"
The ninth and tenth questions are, "Where [is] Abel thy brother?" and "Am I my brother's keeper?"
I believe that your question refers to the tenth question. "Am I my brother's keeper?"
However, I do not believe that the rest of the Bible is the answer to the question. At the juncture at which this question is asked, the book of Genesis has already dealth with sacrifice, thus forewhadowing the sacrifice of the Son of God, and the atonement, and raising the possibility of salvation for those who enter into covenant with God and his Son, and the relationshoip between man and God and the nature of salvation form a large part of the biblical writings.
Human relationships and interactions are very important in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, all Bible based faiths, and their teachinmgs in this area have many remarkable similarities.
