Day 4 - 90 Day Adventure through the Bible

Read Genesis chapters 12-16 In today's chapters we begin to learn about Abram.  This descendant of Adam is called by God from somewhere near modern day Iraq or Assyria to travel to the promised land, the land of Canaan, modern day Israel.  He is there for a brief time before a famine forces him to move on to Egypt.  Before entering Egypt, he and his wife, Sarai, agree to act as brother and sister out of fear for Abram's life.  Pharaoh takes Sarai into his company because of her beauty.  When Pharaoh learns of what Abram has done he returns...

Day 3 - 90 Day Adventure through the Bible

Read Genesis chapters 9-11 The family of Noah and all of the animals have disembarked from the ark.  Noah offered sacrifice in thanksgiving to God and God makes a covenant with Noah.  God promises to never again destroy the earth by water and sets up a reminder of this covenant with a rainbow. We would do well to understand that a covenant is not merely a deal or contract.  Rather, it is an exchange of people or exchange of self.  God promises to be with Noah and to bless his family.  Noah agrees to continue "walking with God."  We will...

Day 1 - 90 Day Adventure through the Bible

Read Genesis Chapter 1-4 Our adventure begins today and it begins in the beginning.  We are given two creation accounts.  The first, Genesis 1:1 - 2:3, gives us a broad overview of the creation of all that is.  We see this creation account from a great distance.  We see chaos and disorder become the cosmos and formed into a hierarchical order culminating with the creation of man. While reading this creation story I'm reminded of C.S. Lewis' book in the Chronicle's of Narnia series, The Magician's Nephew.  In this book we are first introduced to the world of Narnia and...

Why you should join our 90 Day Adventure through the Bible

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began.Now far ahead the Road has gone,And I must follow, if I can,Pursuing it with weary feet,Until it joins some larger way,Where many paths and errands meet.And whither then? I cannot say.The Road goes ever on and onOut from the door where it began.Now far ahead the Road has gone.Let others follow, if they can!Let them a journey new begin.But I at last with weary feetWill turn towards the lighted inn,My evening-rest and sleep to meet. I am old, Gandalf. I don't look it, but I am...
