Genesis 36

March 9, 2017

A podcast designed to help you engage with the Bible daily! Each day, we begin with a reading assignment, designed to take no longer than a few minutes. Then a few minutes of thoughts, comments and questions follow, to help you more fully engage with the text, and to consider throughout the day or to help you begin journaling.

It's not the intent to be exhaustive in covering everything, or even to tell you what you should think about a given text. The main idea is to give you a starting point to begin thinking through and engaging with the text yourself, whether you a seasoned Bible student, or this is your first time reading the Bible. The reading selections are kept purposefully small, to make it as easy as possible to develop the discipline of regular Bible reading, and more importantly Bible engaging! It also helps make it possible to catch up if you fall behind a few days.

March 9, 2017: Genesis 36


A genealogy of the children of Esau, who eventually become the nation of Edom. Also included are a list of some of the kings of Edom. The podcast goes on to mention a few places in the Bible where Edomites play a continuing role throughout the Bible, even into the New Testament.

Questions to consider:

* This chapter says that Esau moved to a different land because there wasn’t enough room for both him and Jacob. What does this say about Esau’s attitude toward his brother, especially later in life?
