Roadmap to the Bible - Week 2

The Patriarchs (Gen. 12-50) 

The rest of Genesis transitions from traversing to sprawling genealogies into a straight-forward narrative of a bronze-age migrant named Abram from Mesopotamia and his descendant’s journey to Canaan. You can break down the remainder of Genesis into 4 Main Stories, each centered on Abraham and his favored descendants, Issac, Jacob (Israel) and lastly Joseph. There will be many “stories within stories” from these 4 main stories including the iconic story of Sodom & Gomorrah, Jacob wrestling with an angel, and Joseph and his brothers, as well as many overlooked stories such as the Battle of Siddim, story of Dinah & Shechem, and the story of Judah & Tamar.
