Bible in a Year, Day 16 ~”Word Alive in 365″

Bible in a Year


Welcome to the Joyful Times Today chronological study of the Bible in a year, complete with inspirational graphics. We’re so glad you’re joining us!


Day 16 ~ Genesis 12-15

Well, we’re back in Genesis after an amazing journey with Job.  He endured so much suffering and yet his faithfulness, even when he was brutually honest with God as he questioned Him, remained true and strong.  Job will forever be an example of endurance for everyone; a model of perseverance under the worst of circumstances.

Now we meet Abram and his wife and journey with them and their nephew, Lot, to Egypt. This is exciting history, dear readers!
