90 Day Challenge Day 2

Read Genesis 17-28:19.


  • Abraham & Circumcision
  • The Visitation
  • Sodom and Gomorrah
  • Abraham lies, Part 2
  • The Birth of Isaac, Ishmael
  • The Offering of Isaac
  • Sarah’s death, Isaac’s
  • Rebekah
  • Abraham’s death
  • Jacob and Esau
  • The stolen birthright
  • Jacob’s departure & dream

This section is filled with much movement, intrigue and deception.  One of the fascinating patterns of the book of Genesis is the foregoing of the older (heir) for the younger.  It starts with Ishmael and Isaac, and continues in the story of Jacob and Esau.  Stay tuned…

The covenant theme is also affirmed and developed.  First with Abraham, then again with Isaac.

Trivia:  We all know who Isaac married and will see who Jacob marries, but can you name Esau’s wives?

One Response

  1. Esau’s wives’ names were Adah and Oholibamah (when I read it I sounded it out to be Oh holy ‘Bamah) and Basemath.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes. 

SBK Productions is your online source for Homeschooling Resources and Art History Curriculum. She also offers several unique devotionals which incorporate Art History with the Church Calendar. Check out her upcoming Christmas Devotional series which would work for individuals, families, small groups, and churches.
