    based on 8 ratings

    Waiting is difficult but it teaches us lessons that we cannot learn any other way. After he interpreted the dreams of Pharaoh's officials, Joseph thought that his time in prison would soon end. But God had more to teach him as he waits another two years

  • Studies In Genesis: Chapter 40 Series

    Contributed by Edward Hardee on Oct 17, 2011

    This is a study of the book of Genesis. Genesis and Revelation are two of the most disputed books in the Bible. The premise of this study is the foundation of creation.

    Note: When doing a study on a book in the Bible you use a lot of resources. The major influence for me on this study of Genesis is The Genesis Record by Henry Morris. What happened in Genesis 39? So Joseph winds up in jail for a crime that he did not commit. This seems to be cruel and more

    Two men, two destinies Genesis 40 Two Cape Bretoners were lost in the woods and one of them said, “I heard that the best way to get someone’s attention is to shoot three times into the air. So, the other guy shot three times in the air and then they waited for about a more
