"So Esau (that is, Edom) settled in the hill country of Seir." ~Genesis 36:8 This simple verse becomes important in about 500 years from this point.

"When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream...

It had been that long since he was sold by his brothers at age 17, making him about 28 when the same Potiphar, captain of the guard who was over the prison warden, makes Joseph serve Pharaoh's chief butler and chief baker during their confinement. Joseph conti...

Genesis 19:29 "So when God destroyed the cities of the plain, he remembered Abraham, and he brought Lot out of the catastrophe that overthrew the cities where Lot had lived."

Genesis 20:12 “Besides, she really is my sister, the daughter of my father though not of my mother; & she became my wife.” Abraham says these words to Abimelech king of Gerar. He is speaking of Sarah. Why would he say such a strange thing.
