When Pharaoh’s Heart Grew Harder

Let’s be honest, Exodus 1-18 is a super intense part of the biblical story, which raises some heavy theological questions. The epic showdown between God and Pharaoh over the fate of the enslaved Israelites is a page-turner. Pharoah is a really bad man—actually the worst person we have met in the Bible so far. As you read these stories, you may be tempted to ask, who is really calling the shots here? Is it God? If so, why would he allow this? And, why does this showdown become so violent and intense? These questions pick up the key themes we introduced in last week’s blog about the conclusion of Genesis (human evil vs. God’s purpose to do good), and explore them even more deeply.

Biblical Storytelling : Repetition & Themes

The narratives of the Old Testament are brilliant, literary works with mind-blowing depth. You just have to learn the literary style of these writers, and one of the easiest styles to start with is the repetition of keywords and themes over the course of multiple stories. The narratives from Genesis to Chronicles are filled with intentionally repeated ideas that are interwoven through whole books and even across multiple books. Once you start to spot these, you know you’re on the trail of the biblical author’s main point. In this weeks blog we focus on one such theme, and it connects the Genesis and Exodus stories.

God Has a Name… Many, Actually!

Have you ever been reading the Bible, especially the Old Testament, and thought God seems to be called by a lot of names? Who is this Yahweh, Elohim, El Roi, Adonai, Savior, Redeemer, and Angel of the Lord? What happened to the simple Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? There are, in fact, dozens of ways in which the people of Israel referred to God, and many of these are revealed to us in Genesis and the rest of the Torah. This multiplicity of names can be a little confusing for those who don’t know ancient Hebrew. So, we thought we’d do our best to open up this fascinating can of worms and show you why it’s important to understand the many ancient names of God.

Genesis & Ancient Cosmic Geography

The Bible is historically the most well-read, well-circulated, commonly quoted, yet widely-criticized book of all time. There is no shortage of topics to debate, and pages one and two of Genesis have unfortunately been a frontrunner for controversy due to the creation vs. evolution debate. Whichever side of that argument you might agree with, it begins with the interpretation of the book of Genesis, which sort of makes sense as Genesis is Hebrew for “in the beginning.” It’s here we see God set the stage for the Garden of Eden and all that will unfold with Adam and Eve. Nevertheless, before we move onto the Garden and the Fall, there is so much to explore in this first chapter of the first book.

Understanding Heaven and Earth in the Bible

Have you ever been to a place that felt especially sacred? A spot that radiated with God’s presence? There is a phrase from early Irish history that names this mystical phenomenon: “Thin Places.” Contrary to popular belief, “Thin Places” are not just gyms and juice bars in Los Angeles. Travel Writer Eric Weiner defines them … Continued
