My Bible Study Genesis Chapter 13 pt 1

We had not been told in chapter 12 that Lot had accompanied his Uncle to Egypt. We presumed he had, but now we are told that he had. Lot was an adult man of some years by this time, but he was following Abram’s lead.

His great wealth, as you remember from the last episode, was in part the result of Pharaoh’s gifts. Gifts that were prompted by the lie that Abram had told. The Lord does not treat us as we deserve!

“Journeyed on” suggests that he moved his large caravan in stages, from one watering hole to the next. He eventually returned to Bethel where he had started, signaling that he had returned to the life of faith in which he had begun his sojourn in Canaan.

e are being told in this way that Abram’s faith in the Lord is still intact despite his fall in Egypt. Faith can co-exist with real sin, even great sin.

Many times, when we fail, we need to return to our roots. Kind of like, hitting the RESET button in our life and in our Faith. This is what I see here with Abraham. He returned to Bethel to demonstrate to God that he was still going to live in Faith to God.

About the Podcast

My Bible Study
Verse by Verse Through The Bible
This has been a project I have been contemplating for a long time.

Join me in walking through the Bible on our personal Bible study - one verse at at time. There is no "preaching" here. Just simple scripture reading with brief explanations and examples of what the scripture mean.

I was inspired to do this project based upon the program "Through The Bible" with Dr. Jay Veron McGee (who is passed on to be with the Lord for several years now). When I first started to study the Bible, his radio program helped me immensely. It took Dr. McGee 5 years to do a complete Bible Study.

I do not know how long it will take us. But you can start listening at anytime. As I continue to add more episodes, you can join us at the most recent program or start at the beginning. Each episode is labeled as to the scriptures we are going to discuss.

I am so blessed you are here and I pray you will get a huge blessing as we join together in "MY BIBLE STUDY!"

You can also watch the corresponding YouTube videos that go with this Bible Study. I record them on FaceBook Live and load them to YouTube and the audio versions go here.
