Genesis Patriarchs ~ Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph ~ plus Sarah, Lot, Rebekah, Hagar, Ishmael, Esau, Leah, Rachel ~ FREE colouring pages, puzzles, crafts, activities, stories, how they all fit in and more…

And it’s also the story of two brothers – Ishmael and Isaac – which affects our world very much today. One, the child of the promise ~ the line of the Messiah. One, the child of ‘helpful human intervention’ while waiting for the promise. The result: sibling rivalry, jealousy, generational hatred, murder and unforgiveness… multiplied exponentially throughout millennia. This explains much of the hatred towards the Jewish people that we see on our daily news bulletins today. They are the descendants of Isaac and more particularly, his son, Jacob (or Israel) ~ and the people group that the Messiah was born into a couple of thousand years ago.

Messiah ~ The Scarlet Thread ~ Detective Thriller ~ Ultimate Drama of all Time

God promised the Messiah ~ the ultimate superhero ~ back in Genesis 3. “It began with a declaration of war… God Himself declared war on the ruler of this world: Satan. A cosmic conflict in which you and I are the prizes… Where would this mysterious deliverer come from? The clues kept on coming… He would be a descendant of Adam. Thus, Satan’s subsequent stratagem was an attempt to contaminate the human gene pool… But that plan was a total washout. Only eight [plus Enoch] were saved from the judgment of the Flood… [Then] God revealed that His plan would focus on a descendant of Abraham Then we discovered that He would be a descendant of David. Ominously, a chain of attacks ensued to wipe out His family. Again and again there were attempts to eliminate His heirs [and thus destroy the Messiah] – but there was always an intervention that foiled the diabolical plots…The most thrilling aspect to this gripping drama is that the final climax is next… [and is] about to begin…”  Read more from Dr Chuck Missler…

Abraham’s Burial Site ~ hidden until 1981  (khouse.org) In 1981, Dr. Seev Jevin, Director of the Israel Antiquities Authority, forced himself through a narrow opening in the underground grave chamber of the Machpela cave, where Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were believed to be buried… Behind bolted doors in Yitzhak Hall, the secret entrance in the southeast wall was opened… he forced himself through a narrow entrance, went down 16 steps and crawled along a 20-meters long, 60-cm high and 100-cm wide tunnel… stumbled on a floor plate… found a hole and slid through the narrow opening… a passage to a second smaller oval room… the name “Machpela” itself means “double cave”… guarded its secret for 4,000 years; a fascinating archaeological discovery and the story behind it.

The BIG test ~ but… WHY?!  Why did God test Abraham by asking him to sacrifice his son in this bizarre incident? God specifically condemns child sacrifice, so what was He doing? God was sharing His heart with Abraham, as well as testing his love, faith and obedience. Abraham knew Isaac would be resurrected if killed. God had promised Abraham that Isaac would have children. It was God’s problem, not Abraham’s. Abraham also knew that he was acting out a prophecy. As Abraham and Isaac climb the hill (after telling the men they would both return), Isaac asks, “Where is the lamb?” Abraham answers, “God will provide… (who?)… Himself a lamb…” and 2000 years later, another Father did, in fact, offer His only Son on that very spot; and that time, there was no reprieve. Isaac was a willing participant in this test of faith – and most likely not a boy, as he is carrying the wood for his aged father and the next thing that is recorded in Scripture is his mother dying when he was 37 years old. [Could Isaac have been 33 years old?! An interesting speculation.] Abraham is a “type” of the Father; Isaac a “type” of the Son, Jesus (who was also a willing participant); the entire episode an anticipation of the cross Read more by Dr Chuck Missler…

Did you know:  Have you ever noticed the many similarities in Joseph’s story to Jesus Christ’s? Jesus Himself stated ‘the volume of the book – i.e. the Old Testament – it is written about me’. The New Testament hadn’t been written yet. Joseph is a ‘type’ of Jesus Christ. Joseph is only one of two people of whom there is no bad recorded against him in Scripture. That doesn’t mean he didn’t sin. It’s just not recorded. Who is the other person? Click here to find the answer.

Hebrew – the oldest known language  (breakingisraelnews) Egyptian hieroglyphics are one of the oldest forms of written communication, however, this ancient Hebrew discovery is about to rewrite history. Archaeologist Dr Douglas Petrovich’s study of the inscribed Egyptian stone slabs asserts that the writings are actually an early form of Hebrew. He believes that the stones recall the Bible’s descriptions about the Israelites living in Egypt and concludes that they transformed Egyptian hieroglyphics into Hebrew more than 3,800 years ago. He also found the Biblical figure, Joseph who was sold into slavery by his half-brothers and became the most powerful leader of Egypt after Pharaoh, as well as Joseph’s wife Asenath and their sons Manasseh and Ephraim. Petrovich is proud to use the Bible as his source for proving his translations. “I have no doubt whatsoever that Hebrew is the world’s oldest alphabet.” Share some of this information with your child; let them know that these are NOT just Sunday school ‘stories’, but REAL people in REAL history; and that the Bible is the history book of the universe

David Rohl  (creation.com) an expert Egyptologist and agnostic, has a passion for teaching others the knowledge that he has accumulated. Here he speaks about some amazing archaeological finds: an Egyptian pyramid with the bones missing… clearly the person honoured by this pyramid was NOT Egyptian… a huge statue smashed… Could this possibly be Joseph of the Bible?
