Week Four

If you like good stories, you'll love this week. It might even be a good week to set aside a little extra time, grab a comfortable chair, and knock out a few days at once to really get into the flow. This is also a good chance to notice how the Bible tells the embarrassing parts of people's stories alongside the moments they were proud of.

In Genesis 31:47 we get the impression that Jacob and his Uncle Laban speak different languages Aramaic and Hebrew. Do you think the 100 years or more of separation since Abraham left is enough to cause this shift?
