Genesis 20:1

October 24, 2009


Genesis 20:1 Now Abraham moved on from there  I love Abraham's thinking here…sometimes it is just best to move on.

Genesis 19:36

October 15, 2009


Genesis 19:36 So both of Lot's daughters became pregnant by their father.  Alright, I'm gonna say it. Chapter 19 is weird. We started with the Village People surrounding Lot's house and end with drunk Lot sleeping with his daughter's two nights in a row. There is so much wrong with the story, but I think […]

Genesis 19:5

October 14, 2009


Genesis 19:5 They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."  Say what????????????????????????????????????????? Here I am reading along….Abraham, Sarah, babies, future of the world, everything seems OK. Then we fast forward a bit and find Lot sitting in […]

Genesis 18:32

October 13, 2009


Genesis 18:32 Then he said, "May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?" He answered, "For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.  If I ever get the chance to write the little chapter headers for the Bible (i.e. Noah […]

Genesis 18:14

October 8, 2009


Genesis 18:14 Is anything too hard for the LORD ?  And I guess the implied answer to this rhetorical question is “No.” This is a question that is easy to answer on the surface, but a little harder in reality.   We have three daughters at our house. Suzie is the oldest, Mabel is the […]

Genesis 17:11

October 6, 2009


Genesis 17:11 You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you. Was there not a different way to signify this covenant? Just sign a contract, give a High-Five, anything except, well…you know… I'm just asking…

Genesis 16:1-2

October 5, 2009


Genesis 16:1-2 Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian maidservant named Hagar; 2 so she said to Abram, "The LORD has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my maidservant; perhaps I can build a family through her." Abram agreed to what Sarai said. I think that […]

Genesis 12:13

October 4, 2009


Genesis 12:13 Say you are my sister, so that I will be treated well for your sake and my life will be spared because of you." To my thinking this is perhaps the second biggest (after Eve and the apple) "Boy I sure wish I didn't do this moment in the Bible." In this passage, […]

Genesis 10:32

October 1, 2009


Genesis 10:32 These are the clans of Noah's sons, according to their lines of descent, within their nations. From these the nations spread out over the earth after the flood. I am now ten chapters into Genesis.  In the Bible I am using, it is page 23 of 1950. There are 1,189 chapters, so I […]
