I imagine many Christians can increase their knowledge of the Minor Prophets.  Here’s a survey of the eleventh book of the Minor Prophets: Zechariah.

Purpose: We will look at the authorship, purpose, structure and other aspects of the book of Zechariah so we would be more familiar with this part of the Bible and yearn to study it for ourselves.

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.  This book just came out last week and its currently #1 in Amazon’s category of New Release for Children’s Bible study.  At this moment it is relatively reasonable in its price too!

 

Harvest House Bible Inforgraphics Team. Bible Infographics for Kids Volume 2.  Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers, May 7th 2019.  56 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a fun and informative book for kids concerning the Bible published by Harvest House Publishers.  I went through this book together with my kids at night and they enjoyed the pictures, graph and facts.  The details include truths that are more like “fun facts” but at times there were some very good instruction concerning more weighty matters that was extremely helpful.  The artwork is well done and really reinforce the content being taught.  After reading this volume I’m considering getting volume 1 which is my vote of approval for this book.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who was Korah’s father?

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

Esau was Korah’s father.

And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan.” (Genesis 36:5)

These were the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah and the [e]granddaughter of Zibeon: she bore to Esau, Jeush and Jalam and Korah..” (Genesis 36:14)

These are the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah: chief Jeush, chief Jalam, chief Korah. These are the chiefs [i]descended from Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah.” (Genesis 36:18)

The sons of Esau were Eliphaz, Reuel, Jeush, Jalam and Korah.” (1 Chronicles 1:35)

Eliphaz was Korah’s father.

These are the chiefs of the sons of Esau. The sons of Eliphaz, the firstborn of Esau, are chief Teman, chief Omar, chief Zepho, chief Kenaz, 16 chief Korah, chief Gatam, chief Amalek. These are the chiefs descended from Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Adah.” (Genesis 36:15-16)

Barry G. Webb.  Five Festal Garments.  Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, March 26th, 2001.  151 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This book is on a Christian examination of five books in the Old Testament that are most neglected in the Bible: The Song of Solomon, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes and Esther.  If you want to learn more about these five books and gain rich insights on them then this volume is worth getting.  This work is a part of the New Studies in Biblical Theology series edited by D.A. Carson.  Personally it was the second title in the series that I read which I looked forward to with much anticipation since the first book I read Adopted into God’s Family left a strong impression.  Five Festal Garments didn’t disappoint.  In fact it exceeded my expectation!

Here’s our blog’s three part outline series on Godly Communication for Marriage.  I think its appropriate that I shared this on Mother’s Day.  For husbands among the many things you can give your spouse, one thing I think our spouse would really appreciate is being better in communicating and communing with our spouse.

For those that have read these posts before I think it is also worth bookmarking and reviewing since it pays great dividends in godliness and marriage to review how to biblically communicate in marriage.

Feel free to comment and share if the Lord used these posts and the biblical truths to encourage you in any way!

So here’s the table of contents of this series:

Yesterday I took my mom out to a buffet for Mother’s day.  I normally don’t go to a buffet.  In fact it has been years I have been to this particular buffet: Hometown buffet.

But it got me thinking about the place for feasts in life.

I know if you look at the picture for today’s post it is of American “Thanksgiving” with the pilgrims and native Americans.

But when we think of American thanksgiving most people think of feasting.

So when was the last time you feasted on God’s Word?  That is, you found so much delight in Scripture you spend some time really consuming it and enjoying the Word of God and the truth contained within its pages?  You’re reading the Word of God, being in the Spirit, with a heart of worship and an attitude of awe, wonder and gratitude?

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

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

Dan.

From the tribe of Dan, Elteke with its pasture lands, Gibbethon with its pasture lands, 24 Aijalon with its pasture lands, Gath-rimmon with its pasture lands; four cities.” (Joshua 21:23-24)

Ephraim.

Now some of the families of the sons of Kohath had cities of their territory from the tribe of Ephraim…Aijalon with its pasture lands and Gath-rimmon with its pasture lands” (1 Chronicles 6:66, 69)

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