I’ve mentioned in several posts about how I’ve had trouble wrapping my ahead around some of the concepts of time in the Bible. Like how people profiled in the Bible lived 180, 600, and even 900+ years during times when the average lifespan was 30-40 years. Or how an entire planet was built in 6 days. I had a lot of questions around this topic, so I decided to ask someone who would know—Pastor Orville Erickson of Greenhill Church in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
Today we continue with the story of Moses working to get the Israelites out of Egypt.
Onto a new chapter! We’re diving into Exodus, the second book of the Bible. What will it bring? I’m not sure, but I’m along for the ride.
Today’s post is a video extra! I’m done with Genesis and took some time to reflect on how reading the first book of the Bible has impacted me so far.
Today, we wrap up Genesis. How will it end? Will there be another cliffhanger? You’ll just have to read to find out, I guess.
Today’s reading was a quick one, as we continue to follow the story of Joseph, Jacob, and that whole clan.
In today’s reading, we’re still with Joseph and his family. The famine is still in full force and Joseph’s family back in Canaan needs grain.
I’m back! After a much-needed hiatus, I’m returning to my daily readings. Today we have feast, famine, dreams, prison, and so much more. We continue to follow Joseph on his adventures as a servant in Egypt.
Before I get back to my daily readings this week, I want to share what’s happened since I started the project.
You may (or may not) have noticed I haven’t been posting daily reading updates the past few days. I’m on a short break to recover from helping pull off a successful pridefest event.
In today’s reading, Genesis 36-38, we’re back to following Jacob and his many, many relatives.
This is another post in my celebration of pride week, and a continuation of my exploration into how the Bible discusses (and, frankly, doesn’t discuss) homosexuality.
In today’s reading, brothers Jacob and Esau re-unite. Will it be peaceful or turbulent? Read to find out.
In lieu of today’s reading, I’m posting an interview where Pastor Sam and I sat down, with opposing viewpoints, to talk about the topic of the Bible and homosexuality.
Jacob gets married, has kids, and goes home.
An exciting announcement, more on Isaac and Jacob, and some minor grammar complaints.
Video Transcript Hey guys. Today I want to talk about kind of dichotomy with religion that I’ve experienced a lot in my own thinking and reflecting on spirituality. But first, […]
In today’s reading, Isaac gets a wife and Abraham dies (spoiler alerts). Plus, we see some classic sibling rivalry in the story of Esau and Jacob.
Genesis 22: Isaac As promised, God gave Abraham a son by Sarah when Abraham was 100 years old. The son was named Isaac, and he was circumcised at 8 days […]
My internal thought before reading: Sodom sounds a lot like sodomy. I wonder where that’s going to go. Onward.
