Joseph's prophecy is not flawed, the sun and moon did bow down to him. Rachel died in childbirth to Benjamin, it was not Leah, she died before they went to Egypt. Who was the moon? Jacob But who was the sun? Israel The reference to mother and father come from pagan religions of that time, that Jacob was exposed to. When God created the sun and ...

Racial differences The existence of racial differences is best explained by scientists, who say that the first humans lived in Africa over 200,000 years ago. These people were black-skinned, simply because black skin helps protect against sun damage and consequent skin cancer, under the harsh African sun. Wikipedia states: Mitochondrial DNA analyses ...

Plenty of Blame to Go Around In the drama which unfolds in Genesis 21, there is certainly plenty of blame to go around. If you tend to root for the underdogs, who in this case are Hagar and Ishmael, your heart goes out to them. Abraham had every right to be upset with his wife Sarah for her obvious harshness and indifference toward Hagar ("that slave ...

Lamech is trolling on Facebook! We know is that the earth was exceedingly violent and wicked in those days, and so we generally assume that Lamech was a prominent person in this culture, but aside from that we don't know a great deal about this Lamech. To understand a bit better what he was really saying, maybe we need to compare his boast with Isaiah ...

Eve, the First sinner: Eve deserved greater curse than Adam because it was her who listened to the serpent and took the fruit. She was the first sinner and the greater sinner. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. (1 Timothy 2:14, NIV) Adam, the Second sinner: Adam simply followed his wife. The ...

I was just searching for some infos and found your question, which isn't answered as it seems. There are only 10 Names, because these are the names of the Firstborn. Adam being the first king of the Earth, as appointed by the Creator, handed down his right to the "Throne of Elohim" (literally that's what the throne of King David is later called) from the ...

Genesis 2:17 says that God placed a Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the middle of the Garden of Eden, telling Adam that he must not eat the fruit of this tree. By way of explanation, the ancients thought of existence as comprising good and evil, so knowing both good and evil meant to know everything. Leon R. Kass says, in The Beginning of Wisdom: ...

I don't think that is what that verse meant. It says : The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when... This was meant to explain how the Nephilim came to the earth. The when here explains how the Nephilims came : the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them So they were not there ...

In the old testament the Tabernacle and later, the Temple, was the dwelling place of the essence of God on earth. It was the center of Spiritual life. After Pentecost, our human bodies became The Temple where the Spirit "in dwells." During the act of procreation, the male and female bodies are indeed conjoined as one, but this temporary union always ends ...

The account in Genesis seems pretty clear that the cave of Abraham is in Hebron. Modern commentators seem to agree that Stephen was "telescoping" multiple Genesis accounts of patriarchal burials into one shorter narrative. I. Howard Marshall's commentary says, for example: The relation of the story of the burial to the Old Testament traditions is ...

The question should be hinged on the first command given to mankind (be fruitful amd multiple) and then the question is begged, how long were they in the garden being obedient. Another situation that begs the question about children is: who was Cain afraid of? In the curse pronounced against Eve, God said that her pain in child bearing will be multiples, you ...

Actually Abraham does not address the visitors as LORD, he address them as Lord. Many English translations (including the NIV and the New King James) use uppercase LORD where the original manuscript have YHWH, the name of God. Other versions translate it Jehovah, or Yahweh. The lowercase "lord" or mixed case "Lord" represent a different word entirely, which ...

According to Augustine, it seems, he interpreted the three men in Genesis 18 as The Trinity God appearing in human form, hence the three men. On the Trinity (Book II) - Chapter 10 But under the oak at Mamre he saw three men, whom he invited, and hospitably received, and ministered to them as they feasted. Yet Scripture at the beginning of that ...

Genesis chapters 18-19 is a powerful proof text for these reasons: First, is clearly shows Yahweh walking around on the earth in human form with two angels. They are called "three men". Yahweh and the two angels are called men, because they appeared as men. Second: God taking human appearance on earth is called a "Theophanies". There are several other ...

Some people may well regard this as a theophany of the Christian trinity, however, the word used here for 'men'is clearly representative of humans, not gods, or the supernatural. Other Christians believe the Bible to be divinely inspired, in which case God would have used a word that implied divinity, not one used for men. True, Abraham is represented as ...

The Sun and the Moon do definitely represent his father and mother: Genesis 37:10 NKJV So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, "What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?" The bowing down does not refer to the ...

Lamech killed two people and was boasting about it to his wives. His character would likely be that of no remorse for wrong doing, like his grandfather Cain. He already had disrespected God by taking two wives instead of one. God only gave his great, great, great, grandfather Adam one wife. In Lamech we see evidence of what happens to a people when they ...
