Genesis ~ Links (Patriarchs)

The Genesis patriarchs ~ Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph ~ plus Sarah, Lot, Rebekah, Ishmael, Esau, Leah, Rachel ~ free printable 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

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 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?!] Abraham is a “type” of the Father; Isaac a “type” of the Son (who was also a willing participant); the entire episode an anticipation of the cross Read more

Did you know:  Have you ever noticed the many similarities in Joseph’s story to Jesus Christ’s? Jesus Himself said ‘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  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, 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 be Joseph of the Bible?
