Narrative 058: At the Foot of the Mountain

In this, the 58th hour of our narrative study of the Scriptures, we consider the events at the base of Mount Sinai while Moses was preparing to meet God and receive the Ten Words (the Ten Commandments), as well as the design for the Tabernacle Israel was to build. Why does God draw us out of [...] [...]

Narrative 041: The First Encounter

In this session, we focus on the 42nd chapter of Genesis, and the initial encounter between Joseph and his brothers. There is a lot of complexity and interesting material on the surface of this chapter in Genesis, but if you dig under the covers a little, you’ll find it’s even more intriguing that you first [...] [...]

Narrative 040: Dreams

In this set of slides, we discuss the dreams of the Baker and the Cupbearer, and then two dreams of the Pharaoh. We also discuss the general structure of the Joseph story to this point, and other interesting facets of the dream sequences as they are presented.

Narrative 039: Potiphar's Wife

In this study, we discuss the timing of Joseph’s arrival in Egypt a little; the date that fits the Biblical chronology is around 1850 BC or so, which would place the Exodus at around 1440 BC. David Rohl has proposed an alternate Egyptian dating system that would place Joseph around 1600BC, but this causes problems [...] [...]

Narrative 32: Jacob's Dream

For this hour of the narrative study in our small group, we’re looking at Genesis 28, specifically the dream Jacob had at Bethel on his way out of the Land. Was he simply fleeing, or was there more to his travel to Haran? [...]

Narrative 029: Jacob and Esau (1)

We continue working our way through Genesis (there’s a lot of material to cover in Genesis) with chapter 25, up to the birth of Jacob and Esau.
