I’m glad for the internet and living in this time where there’s so much information online and on my computer.  For some of my homeschooling with my kids I’ve designed a few lessons of my own through other books and other resources.

Next Wednesday we will pick up again our homeschool lessons here on this blog.  It will be another series added to what we have here.

Since kids are slowly going back to school I thought I share the links to the table of contents of various homeschool lesson series I have posted on this blog thus far.  They are for Kindergarten and first grade.

Our Depravity and God’s Deliverance

Psalm 14

 

The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good. 2 The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there are any who understand, Who seek after God. 3 They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one. 4 Do all the workers of wickedness not know, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, And do not call upon the Lord? 5 There they are in great dread, For God is with the righteous generation. 6 You would put to shame the counsel of the afflicted, But the Lord is his refuge. 7 Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the Lord restores His captive people, Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad.

 

Establish the Need: Two big problem of our age today is that people don’t see themselves as that sinful while also not believing God will deliver His people.

 

Purpose: In this Psalm we see two truths we have during seasons of our live where we have a lot of questions for God.

  • You need to know how God sees the depravity of unbelief (v.1-3)
  • You need to know how God promise deliverance for believers (v.4-7)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Which tribe was Hyram from?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

The tribe of Naphtali

Now King Solomon sent and brought Hiram from Tyre. 14 He was a widow’s son from the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in bronze; and he was filled with wisdom and understanding and skill for doing any work in bronze. So he came to King Solomon and performed all his work.” (1 Kings 7:13-14)

 

The tribe of Dan

Now I am sending Huram-abi, a skilled man, endowed with understanding, 14 the son of a Danite woman and a Tyrian father, who knows how to work in gold, silver, bronze, iron, stone and wood, and in purple, violet, linen and crimson fabrics, and who knows how to make all kinds of engravings and to execute any design which may be assigned to him, to work with your skilled men and with [e]those of my lord David your father..” (2 Chronicles 2:13-14)

 

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

While looking back of my old post on this day from previous years I found this one that I wrote five years ago on this day:   It flooded back of a lot of memory of my hardest week of ministry where I actually thought about quitting my church.

I could talk about it a little more now though I’m not revealing everything.

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few weeks ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 5:3  Here is my translation:

“μακάριοι οἱ πενθοῦντες ,
Blessed are those who mourn,

ὅτι αὐτοὶ παρακληθήσονται. ”
because they will be comforted

Here are some observations:
