Genesis 50: The End of the Beginning

And so Genesis 50 closes out the book quietly and solemnly. Jacob has died and Joseph follows. It is a time to grieve the loss of these two great men of faith. So how exactly to Egyptians honor the dead? Oh yes, I remember . . .

THEY MUMMIFY THEIR CORPSES!

Born in Arizona, Moved to Babylonia. King TUT!

Who knew that Jacob and Joseph become the stuff of childhood nightmares and terrible Brendan Fraser movies?

I really do learn something new every day.

Celebrating Genesis

One thing I would like to do is celebrate each book of the Bible that I finish. I want to do something that thematically ties into what I read. I have several ideas but I would love some help from you. Here is what I have so far:

  • Eat an exotic fruit
  • Build a model ark
  • Walk around downtown blessing strangers
  • Listen to Genesis (the band) all day. Thanks Shawn Smucker!

What are some other things I should try? Leave a comment with a suggestion. Whatever one (or two or three) I think is the best I will do and then write a post about it on Friday.

  1. The Egyptians first discovered fermentation, which of course leads to Beer. So you should drink a really good pint and toast to your favorite characters in Genesis.
