GOD’S STANDARDS of morality as revealed in His word are a lot more egalitarian than skeptics will admit. Today we discuss God’s instructions for caring for the poor, widows, and orphans, and we go into some depth on marriage, divorce, and gender roles for men and women.
Note chapter 22 of Deuteronomy. Skeptics love to point to this chapter for examples of the barbaric nature of Yahweh. They prove nothing except that anyone can take passages out of context (especially by ignoring the New Covenant in Christ) to make a point.
OUR VIRTUAL house fellowship continues with our study of the book of Genesis. We begin at chapter 37, picking up the story of Joseph, his sale into slavery by his brothers and rise to prominence in Egypt, with an interlude that gives us the story of the foundation of the tribe of Judah.
Computer recreation of statue found at Avaris — was this Joseph?
Here is the link to the WND article about the possible discovery in Egypt of a statue of Joseph.

Rohl as the pharaoh during Joseph’s tenure as vizier.
This link takes you to a YouTube video of an excerpt from a lecture by David Rohl about the excavation at the ancient city of Avaris that he believes was the tomb and the statue of Joseph.
