With this week’s lesson, we move from studying one person’s life, Abraham, to how God transforms his people into the nation of Israel, who God will use as His representatives on earth, the ones who will write His Word, demonstrate His worship, and eventually be the family that bears the Savior of the world, Jesus. [Read more…]
In Genesis, with the life of Abraham, we have a big shift, where God moves from working with all of humanity to a focus on ONE man, who will become the founder of the Jewish nation. Ultimately three major religions in our world today claim him as their founder: the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim religions. [Read more…]
One of the great answers we discovered the first video of this series is the assurance that Life after death is a great promise to those who believe in Jesus. Yet that assurance brings up another question that we will answer in this lesson which is:

Committing to reading the Bible in the coming year in chronological order is a significant time-consuming and spiritual decision. There are many schedules available for you to do that and I encourage you to make the most of any and all of them.

Following are a podcast, video, and a written transcript of the specific reasons why I organized the readings into the order that I did. [Read more…]
The Old Testament makes up a large section of our Bibles, but though many people are familiar with the first part of it with the stories of Creation and the early characters in Biblical history, many people stop there.
