Genesis 25–50; Exodus 1–4   March 8-–Read Genesis 25 As we were discussing these stories in Bible class recently, a student raised her hand and said, “Would people start dreading being the oldest, because they never actually got the blessing?”  I had never really thought of this before, but she had a point.  There are […]
