Welcome back podcast fans!  Today’s chapter is the continuation of the cliffhanger story that we left off from in chapter 44 when we were wondering if Joseph would indeed make his brothers go home without Benjamin.  Would Jacob survive the shock?  Would Judah really go through with it?  Who knows!? Turns out, Joseph couldn’t hold […]

Welcome back!  Today we’re looking at one of the most tense moments in Joseph’s story.  I love where the chapter divide falls between Genesis 44 and 55, because it’s such a cliffhanger moment.  Since it’s so well set up for me, I might as well go ahead and use it to make you all come […]

Hello again, and welcome back!  So, it turns out my plans to do three recordings last week didn’t work out… That’s life! Wednesday ended up being such a bad day that it took out part of Thursday on the way down, so this week I will hopefully be able to get back on my planned […]

Hello again, and welcome back!  Today’s episode is something that would be perfectly acceptable in a soap opera plot.  It’s got twists and turns and stunning revelations.  All that’s missing is a cast of unrealistically pretty people in softly lit rooms. It can be tempting at times in this and the coming passages to assume […]

Hello again, podcast fans!  Today we finally get to read about something going well for Joseph.  He’s finally remembered in prison and he gets moved out of there and into much bigger and better things.  It’s a pretty good time in his life! As I mentioned before in previous episodes and pointed out in today’s […]

Wow!  It’s been a long time since I have posted something, which was not what I intended to happen, but life is like that.  So, here we go with the next chapter of Genesis! What I like about this chapter is that it shows that even the heroes in the Bible go through periods when […]

Hello again, podcast fans.  This morning we’re back on track with Joseph as the main subject of our story after our brief interlude yesterday with Judah.  The events in this chapter are pretty famous, and you’ve probably heard them before at some point, so I’m not going to write a whole lot about them.  What […]

Happy Wednesday, Internet friends.  Today we’re studying a really weird chapter in Genesis, which talks about an absolutely scandalous relationship between Judah and his daughter-in-law Tamar.  It’s a crazy story, and there isn’t really anyone in it that can be considered “good” or “right” in what they do.  So, what’s the deal with this story?

Hello again an welcome back for the first episode this week in the life of Joseph, a very important Bible character.  His story is of course famous, so you probably know what’s going to happen already.  However, as we begin this part of the Bible, I want to point out that Joseph is used as […]

Hi, all.  This morning’s podcast is a short one, but I really wanted to save the introduction of Joseph for its own recording, because that’s a pretty big event.  So, what we have here today is a genealogical list of chiefs and kings descended from Jacob’s brother Esau.  This is a historical record of the […]

Welcome back for another episode!  Today we’re in Genesis 35, which goes by fairly quickly, but it is still pretty interesting to me.  What I can relate to in this chapter is the way that God shows that He doesn’t call people based on how good they are, but based on faith.  Jacob screwed stuff […]

Good morning again!  Today is another two chapter day.  In Genesis 33 we talk about the meeting of Esau and Isaac after twenty years and how that goes nothing like what Jacob had imagined.  It turns out that 20 years had mellowed Esau’s personality as well, and he was willing to forget his grudges.  It’s […]

Hello again!  I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving holiday.  I certainly did, though it did use up my podcasting time.  I guess I’ll have to plan better next year. So in today’s chapter, there is some thanksgiving happening with Jacob, but it’s mixed with some terror and apprehension.  Jacob is on his way back […]

Hello again, and happy Tuesday.  Today we’re in a bit of a long chapter, and my voice isn’t cooperating, so please excuse me for the water and coughing breaks. In chapter 31 things sour between Laban and Jacob.  Jacob has worked for Laban for 20 years, and in that time God has made sure to […]

Okay, so yesterday I said to check back in for this episode because things were going to go crazy for Jacob, and that is exactly what happens in this chapter.  Jacob’s time with Laban’s family is filled with drama.  His wives are filled with drama, his work is filled with drama, and at the center […]

Good morning again!  It’s Wednesday, and we’re going through Genesis 29 and reading the story of how Jacob marries his two wives.  It involves Laban, who is a tricky customer, and who will go on to try to manipulate Jacob’s life even more in the coming chapters.  By the end of chapter 29, though, Jacob […]

Welcome back again!  It’s a new week, and coincidentally we’re getting into a new phase in Jacob’s life in Genesis 28.  We’re starting the part of the Bible where Jacob learns to be faithful, and eventually he will have his name changed to reflect his relationship with God.  At this point though, Jacob is still […]

Hello again and happy Thursday!  It’s almost the weekend, so that’s something to be happy about for sure.  In this chapter, we’re covering a famous episode in the history of Isaac and Jacob.  It’s a sordid tale of lies and deception and it threatens to end in murder, though we know that it never comes […]
