I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse, and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” 4 So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran. He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there. 6 Abram traveled through the land as far as the site of the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. 7 Yahweh appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So, he built an altar there to Yahweh, who had appeared to him.

19 “Here comes that dreamer!” they said to each other. 20 “Come now, let’s kill him and throw him into one of these cisterns and say that a ferocious animal devoured him. Then we’ll see what comes of his dreams.” 21 When Reuben heard this, he tried to rescue him from their hands. “Let’s not take his life,” he said. 22 “Don’t shed any blood. Throw him into this cistern here in the wilderness, but don’t lay a hand on him.” Reuben said this to rescue him from them and take him back to his father. 23 So when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe—the ornate robe he was wearing— 24 and they took him and threw him into the cistern. The cistern was empty - there was no water in it. 25 As they sat down to eat their meal, they looked up and saw a caravan of Ishmaelites coming from Gilead. Their camels were loaded with spices, balm and myrrh, and they were on their way to take them down to Egypt. 26 Judah said to his brothers, “What will we gain if we kill our brother and cover up his blood? 27 Come, let’s sell him to the Ishmaelites and not lay our hands on him. After all, he is our brother, our own flesh and blood.” His brothers agreed. 28 So when the Midianite merchants came by, his brothers pulled Joseph up out of the cistern and sold him for twenty shekels of silver to the Ishmaelites, who took him to Egypt.

There was famine in all the other lands, but in the whole land of Egypt there was food. 55 When all Egypt began to feel the famine, the people cried to Pharaoh for food. Then Pharaoh told all the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph and do what he tells you.” 56 When the famine had spread over the whole country, Joseph opened all the storehouses and sold grain to the Egyptians, for the famine was severe throughout Egypt. 57 And all the world came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph, because the famine was severe everywhere.

Genesis 45:25-28

25 So they went up out of Egypt and came to their father Jacob in the land of Canaan. 26 They told him, “Joseph is still alive! In fact, he is ruler of all Egypt.” Jacob was stunned; he did not believe them. 27 But when they told him everything Joseph had said to them, and when he saw the carts Joseph had sent to carry him back, the spirit of their father Jacob revived. 28 And Israel said, “I’m convinced! My son Joseph is still alive. I will go and see him before I die.”

1 Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a Levite woman, and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him for three months. But when she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with tar and pitch. Then she placed the child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile. His sister stood at a distance to see what would happen to him. Then Pharaoh’s daughter went down to the Nile to bathe, and her attendants were walking along the riverbank. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her female slave to get it. She opened it and saw the baby. He was crying, and she felt sorry for him. “This is one of the Hebrew babies,” she said. Then his sister asked Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and get one of the Hebrew women to nurse the baby for you?” “Yes, go,” she answered. So the girl went and got the baby’s mother. Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this baby and nurse him for me, and I will pay you.” So the woman took the baby and nursed him. 10 When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, “I drew him out of the water.”

Exodus 2:11-14

11 One day, after Moses had grown up, he went out to where his own people were and watched them at their hard labor. He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people. 12 Looking this way and that and seeing no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. 13 The next day he went out and saw two Hebrews fighting. He asked the one in the wrong, “Why are you hitting your fellow Hebrew?” 14 The man said, “Who made you ruler and judge over us? Are you thinking of killing me as you killed the Egyptian?” Then Moses was afraid and thought, “What I did must have become known.”

Exodus 3:1-10

1 Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2 There the angel of Yahweh appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. 3 So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.” 4 When Yahweh saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am.” 5  “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” 6 Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God. 7 The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. 8 So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey—the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. 9 And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. 10 So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.”

After Moses had sent away his wife Zipporah, his father-in-law Jethro received her and her two sons.

Numbers 6:1-21

“‘During the entire period of their Nazirite vow, no razor may be used on their head. They must be holy until the period of their dedication to Yahweh is over; they must let their hair grow long. Throughout the period of their dedication to Yahweh, the Nazirite must not go near a dead body. Even if their own father or mother or brother or sister dies, they must not make themselves ceremonially unclean on account of them, because the symbol of their dedication to Yahweh is on their head. Throughout the period of their dedication, they are consecrated to Yahweh.

 

“‘If someone dies suddenly in the Nazirite’s presence, thus defiling the hair that symbolizes their dedication, they must shave their head on the seventh day—the day of their cleansing. 10 Then on the eighth day they must bring two doves or two young pigeons to the priest at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 11 The priest is to offer one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering to make atonement for the Nazirite because they sinned by being in the presence of the dead body. That same day they are to consecrate their head again. 12 They must rededicate themselves to  for the same period of dedication and must bring a year-old male lamb as a guilt offering. The previous days do not count, because they became defiled during their period of dedication.

13 “‘Now this is the law of the Nazirite when the period of their dedication is over. They are to be brought to the entrance to the tent of meeting. 14 There they are to present their offerings to Yahweh: a year-old male lamb without defect for a burnt offering, a year-old ewe lamb without defect for a sin offering, a ram without defect for a fellowship offering, 15 together with their grain offerings and drink offerings, and a basket of bread made with the finest flour and without yeast—thick loaves with olive oil mixed in, and thin loaves brushed with olive oil. 16 The priest is to present all these before Yahweh and make the sin offering and the burnt offering. 17 He is to present the basket of unleavened bread and is to sacrifice the ram as a fellowship offering to Yahweh, together with its grain offering and drink offering.

18 “‘Then at the entrance to the tent of meeting, the Nazirite must shave off the hair that symbolizes their dedication. They are to take the hair and put it in the fire that is under the sacrifice of the fellowship offering. 19 After the Nazirite has shaved off the hair that symbolizes their dedication, the priest is to place in their hands a boiled shoulder of the ram, and one thick loaf and one thin loaf from the basket, both made without yeast. 20 The priest shall then wave these before Yahweh as a wave offering; they are holy and belong to the priest, together with the breast that was waved and the thigh that was presented. After that, the Nazirite may drink wine. 21 This is the law of the Nazirite who vows offerings to Yahweh in accordance with their dedication, in addition to whatever else they can afford. They must fulfill the vows they have made, according to the law of the Nazirite.’”

Numbers 14:21-23

21 Nevertheless, as surely as I live and as surely as the glory of the Lord fills the whole earth, 22 not one of those who saw my glory and the signs I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times— 23 not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their ancestors. No one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it.

When he does wrong, I will punish him with a rod wielded by men, with floggings inflicted by human hands. 15 But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. 16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me.

You are not to build a house for my Name, because you have shed much blood on the earth in my sight. But you will have a son who will be a man of peace and rest, and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side. His name will be Solomon, and I will grant Israel peace and quiet during his reign. 10 He is the one who will build a house for my Name. He will be my son, and I will be his father. And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish? My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest. Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One. You are the one Israel praises. In you our ancestors put their trust - they trusted and you delivered them. To you they cried out and were saved. In you they trusted and were not put to shame. But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by everyone, despised by the people. All who see me mock me. They hurl insults, shaking their heads. “He trusts in the Lord,” they say, “let the Lord rescue him. Let him deliver him, since he delights in him.” Yet you brought me out of the womb. You made me trust in you, even at my mother’s breast. 1From birth I was cast on you - from my mother’s womb you have been my God. 11 Do not be far from me, for trouble is near and there is no one to help. 12 Many bulls surround me - strong bulls of Bashan encircle me. 13 Roaring lions that tear their prey open their mouths wide against me. 14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart has turned to wax - it has melted within me. 12 My mouth is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth. You lay me in the dust of death. 16 Dogs surround me, a pack of villains encircles me - they pierce my hands and my feet. 17 All my bones are on display - people stare and gloat over me. 18 They divide my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment.

A day of Yahweh is coming, Jerusalem, when your possessions will be plundered and divided up within your very walls. I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it. The city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. Then Yahweh will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights on a day of battle. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then Yahweh my God will come, and all the holy ones with him. 6 On that day there will be neither sunlight nor cold, frosty darkness. It will be a unique day—a day known only to Yahweh—with no distinction between day and night. When evening comes, there will be light. 8 On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half of it east to the Dead Sea and half of it west to the Mediterranean Sea, in summer and in winter. 9 Yahweh will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one Lord, and his name the only name.

Matthew 27:5-8

5 Judas threw down the thirty pieces of silver in the Temple, then left, went out and hung himself. And the chief priests took the silver, saying, “We shouldn’t put this back in the Temple treasury, because it is blood money [money paid for someone’s death].” They decided together to use the money to buy the potter’s field [that was nearby] and use it as a place to bury strangers. [The money would be used for charitable purposes.] The field is therefore called the “field of blood” to this day.

Mark 7:9-13

9 He said to them, “You are experts at bypassing God's Law to conform to your own traditions. 10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ [Exodus 20:12] and ‘Whoever speaks evil of their father and mother, let them be put to death’ [Exodus 21:17]. 11 But you say that what you would have dedicated to your father and mother has already been set aside for God. 12 In fact, you won't even allow a man to help their parents from the money they had dedicated to God. 13 Thus, you nullify the word of God through your tradition. [In fact, you ignore God's intention, while putting the blame on God. Then you actually benefit yourselves from that which was supposedly set aside for God.] And many other similar things you do.”

And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nikanor, Timon, Parmenus, and Nikolas, who was a convert from Antioch. The congregation set those whom they had chosen before the apostles, and when the apostles had prayed, they laid their hands on these men [to impart the authority and power to accomplish their assignment].

They took him by the hand and led him into Damascus. He couldn’t see for three days, and he didn’t eat or drink.

Romans 3:21-25

21 But now a way has been revealed to be made righteous, but not through the Law, and the Law and the Prophets testify to this way.  22 God makes people righteous through their faith in Jesus, the Anointed One. This applies to all who believe [in Jesus] for there are no differences [between men] - 23 all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. [No one behaved well enough to receive God’s approval and blessing.] 24 But everyone [who believes] has been made righteous through the benevolence of the redemption that is in the Anointed One, Jesus. 25 God considers [what Jesus did for us] to be the [blood sacrifice that makes] complete payment through faith in his blood.

Romans 3:21-25
Romans 8:1-4

Romans 8:1-4

There is no longer any judgment of guilt for those in the Anointed One, Jesus, because the law of the Spirit of Life in the Anointed One Jesus releases me from the law of sin and death. For what the Law could not do since it was made ineffective by our flesh, God himself did. He gave his own son a body with fleshly human nature, and sin itself was overturned. We can be righteous only by following the Spirit. In this way, the righteousness by the Law was fulfilled in us, because we are the ones who don’t walk according to our fleshly human nature but instead walk according to the Spirit.

Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and you believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

7 He was seen by James [his brother] and the rest of the apostles

1 Corinthians 15:24-28

24 Right after that will be the final action [of this age on earth], where the Lord will turn over his kingdom to God the Father. First, he [the Father] will overcome every ruler, authority, and power [on the earth and in the spirit realm], 25 for he [Jesus] must rule until he [the Father] has put every enemy under his feet. 26 And the last enemy to be destroyed is Death [once all are resurrected]27 For it is the Father who puts everything under our Lord's feet, since when the scripture [Psalms 110:1] says, “Everything will be put under his feet,” obviously “everything” does not include the one who [has the power to] put things under our Lord's feet. 28 When all things have become submitted to the Son, the Son himself will submit all things to God [the Father], so that God [the Father] can be over all.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

16 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

Hebrews 8:6-7,13

Hebrews 8:6-7,13

But in fact the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises. For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another.... 13 By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete, and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.
