Looking back on Job

As you might remember, this one really threw me for a loop. There's a lot of poetic speech and ranting and I got lost. Maybe I just had too much going on in life to get a good handle on it. I know some of the things that people say about this book, what it's… Continue reading Looking back on Job

Looking back at Chronicles

Unlike all the other books, Chronicles was a mostly a rehash of other books. All the women mentioned in the first book (for the most part) are mentioned in First or  Second Samuel. Some exceptions are the women of the Genealogies but you can find them in that post. The other two posts on 1 Chronicles are Exploits of David and David's last… Continue reading Looking back at Chronicles

Joshua, Reflections

Looking back at Joshua

The book of Joshua concludes the story that began back in Egypt in the book of Exodus. Moses had liberated the Israelites and was leading them to the land that God had promised to their fathers when they hit a few snags in the road. They are dealt with in the last books and this… Continue reading Looking back at Joshua

Leviticus, Reflections

Looking back at Leviticus

There was no storyline to this book which meant, for me at least, that it was a bit of a trudge to get through it. Laws are obviously important and even laws that are no longer enforced or whose current relevancy are debated over must be known when discussing people who did abide them in… Continue reading Looking back at Leviticus

Exodus, Reflections

Looking back at Exodus

This isn't quite the story that I had remembered hearing about, though this is one that is talked about a lot. There are a few movies out there these days that reenact the events, but they seem hollow now. There is more to this book than the plagues and the commandments and even those stories… Continue reading Looking back at Exodus

I have to be honest, this one really throws me for a loop. There's a lot of poetic speech and ranting and I get lost. Maybe I just had too much going on in life to get a good handle on it. I know some of the things that people say about this book, what… Continue reading Reflections on Job

Reflections on 2 Chronicles

Much like I mentioned back in the Reflection post on 1 Chronicles, this is primarily a rehash of  those events, this time without the inclusion of the kings of Israel alongside the kings of Judah. The women mentioned in this book are also in both 1 Kings and 2 Kings and you can find them… Continue reading Reflections on 2 Chronicles

Reflections on 1 Chronicles

So, normally I try to break a reflection post down into some major parts of the book and mention some notable women, but this book is different for that. Mainly because there are two other sources already made for this. All the women mentioned in this book (for the most part) are mentioned in First or  Second… Continue reading Reflections on 1 Chronicles

Judges, Reflections

Reflections on Judges

Judges is supposed to be about the downfall of Israel. It starts off like they might just make it passed some hiccups but even the judges themselves become progressively worse. Notable Women Deborah, obviously. She is one of the better known women of the Bible. The whole of chapter five is a song dedicated to… Continue reading Reflections on Judges
