    SMPMEMCMIMAMLMMM NMOMTMEM The Bible takes SIX full chapters telling of Joseph's tenure as Egypt's overlord and of his convoluted reconciliation with his brothers and his father Jacob. But this post is not the Bible and cannot include all of that text, so you will find only very limited portions, just enough to outline the story without doing violence to it. Of course, as always, your Bible contains the complete text.

  • Have the Jewish End Times Begun?

    The End Times, for many Christians, brings to mind the Rapture, Tribulation, the Second Coming, and Judgement Day. But what do Jewish traditions teach about the End Times? And are those traditions coming true before our eyes? Jewish beliefs about the End Times are based on the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament, especially the books of Ezekiel, Isaiah, Daniel, and Malachi) as well as later rabbinic sources in the Talmud and Midrash. These traditions discuss key events that include: – The Resurrection of the Dead – The Ingathering of the Exiles (including the “Ten Lost Tribes of Israel”) – The...

Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”3 Early the next morning Abraham got up and loaded his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac.

    Opinion| The Secretary General of The United Nations, Antonio Guterres, finally said what we all knew what he was going to say and called for the implementation a single one world government.I would sure bet that Guterres is going to suggest that the United Nations, which he is the head of, would be that singular authority with virtually unlimited and unchecked power.  Imagine my shock that a global bureaucrat would be looking to put the entire world under his thumb.“We need a networked multilateralism, bringing together the U.N. system, regional organizations, international financial institutions and others. And we need an...

    Are we heading for the Bible’s great end-time conflict? We appear to be approaching yet more choppy waters in Israel’s turbulent history. The Jewish state’s proposed ‘annexation’ of the Jordan Valley, along with parts of Judea and Samaria – otherwise known as the West Bank despite being the heart of ancient Israel – is causing hackles to rise once again among the nations. This includes Britain who insist on sticking to their longstanding Foreign Office mantra of pushing for a ‘two-state solution’ – even though there is no evidence whatsoever that it will work, or indeed that it is justifiable....

As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar.

  • Does the Bible Condone Slavery?

    RZIM ^ | L.T. Jeyachandran
    Every thinking reader of the Bible is bound to ask at some point in time, "Does this book actually condone slavery?" To be sure, slavery is not the only issue the Bible causes us to question. The Old Testament is rife with palace intrigues, polygamy, divorce, violence and the like, and godly people are very often part of the problem. Although the New Testament is decidedly improved, it still seems to fall far short of that which twenty-first century human rights would expect. There are no women among the twelve disciples of Jesus and Christian masters do have slaves...

And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast. Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? If you do what is right, will...
