51 Appendix

By |

And now as Paul Harvey would say . . . 

Well we end our time together by coming full circle back to Genesis 1. We have seen how God reveals Himself to us through the beauty of his creation around us. God tells us […]

50 Battle of the Bones

By |

What a great testament to the life of integrity Joseph led by Pharaoh letting him return to Canaan. Not only return, but it was attended by all the Egyptian dignitaries. They didn’t know Jacob, but they respected Joseph and owed him and his God their very lives. The funeral procession had to be in the […]

49 Blessings & Honor

By |

Jacob, AKA Israel, calls the whole family together to dispense his final blessing and it doesn’t go as you might think. Reuben was to receive the privilege of the 1st born son, but he had sex with his step mom. Simeon and Levi were rambunctious and played too many violent video games and they disqualified […]

48 Criss Cross

By |

It is fun to see Jacob here at the end of his life with much joy being able to bless his son Joseph and his grandsons. I also think even at the age of 147 he was still sharp. When it came time to give out the blessing, he […]

47 I said a Pharaoh Pharoah

By |

Jacob goes with Joseph to meet Pharaoh and verse 7 is funny to me. Imagine you get to go meet the President or Supreme Chancellor of your day. It’s an honor, a big deal, they probably had to go through a lot of security, like Pharaoh’s guards, […]

46 Are we there yet??

By |

We are fascinated today with people who have more than 2.5 children. John & Kate +8, The Duggar’s with their 20+ kids (Probably 30 by the time you read this!) But if there was a reality TV show around when Jacob was leaving Beersheba to Egypt they would have been fixed on Jacob and his […]

45 Candid Camera – You’ve Been Punked!

By |

“Joseph could stand it no longer.” The pranks and trickery are now over, and they are about to learn that they have all been “punked” The brothers response to Joseph’s unveiling was classic “they were stunned and speechless.” I’m not sure if Judah wet his tunic here […]

44 Magic 8 Ball

By |

Joseph is quite the prankster. He uses the same trick as before, but this time he took it up a notch by putting the silver cup in Ben’s bag. Then he messes with them and says “Don’t you know this is […]

43 He’s in the Jailhouse Now

By |

Verse 2 is one of those verses that is easy to skip right over. I don’t know how long it takes to travel from Hebron (35:27) to Egypt by donkey, but apparently, they didn’t turn right back around to get Simeon. They left him in the jailhouse and now that the food was running out, […]

42 DBLOH 6 1/2

By |

As God’s plan of redemption for his people and specifically Jacob and his family begins to unfold, we see Joseph messing with his brothers. I’m not sure if he was a prankster or if this was out of partial revenge. I lean toward the latter due to […]
