Genesis 17 – Circumcision a laughing matter? (video)

Genesis 17 – Circumcision a laughing matter? (video)

Here’s today’s session for those who couldn’t be there in person. Today we looked at God’s reaffirmation of the Covenant he made with Abram (who gets a new name in this chapter) back in Gen.15. It’s been about 15 years or so since the beginning of ch.16’s events. Abram is 99 years old. Sarai is […]

Hi Dojo readers, On Tuesday we looked at the events of Genesis 16 involving Abram, Sarai and an Egyptian named Hagar. We also met the mysterious “Angel of the LORD” for the first time. Despite the snowy weather, we had a good crowd and, as always, great food thanks to Ruth’s Chris on Fairview!

Gen.15 – Smoke, Fire…and a weird, bloody ritual

Gen.15 – Smoke, Fire…and a weird, bloody ritual

Hi Dojo readers, Here is today’s study of Genesis 15 from our weekly lunchtime Bible study at Ruth’s Chris on Fairview. This foundational chapter in the Bible contains some bizarre imagery. However, once we understand its significance within the world of the ancient Near East, the implications for how we read the rest of the […]

Thayer Thursday – Biblical ‘fulfillment’ and the virgin birth

Thayer Thursday – Biblical ‘fulfillment’ and the virgin birth

“Matthew sees in Jesus the filling fully of Israel’s past. By rooting Jesus in these Old Testament happenings, Matthew shows how Jesus fills fully, or brings to a full completion the story of Israel. He shows his readers that the stories of the Old Testament were echoes or shadows of what was to come.”

Thayer Thursday – Biblical ‘Fulfillment’

Thayer Thursday – Biblical ‘Fulfillment’

For many who have grown up in the church (and probably many who didn’t) the Biblical concept of “prophecy and fulfillment” is generally misunderstood. In our culture, “prophecy” and its “fulfillment” are largely understood as consisting of a prediction which has its embodiment only and completely in the future. This is mostly due to Hollywood […]

A different look at the story of Noah and the flood

A different look at the story of Noah and the flood

“Here is the rough, somewhat woodenly-literal translation I put together which seeks to leave the ambiguities of the text in place for the reader to wrestle with, and also leaves untranslated various Hebrew terms which are found particularly in the Creation narratives or which can be interpreted in more than one way.”

6 passages you won’t find illustrated in children’s Bibles
