contemplating the Scriptures

Genesis 37:1-4,12-28

Jacob has had twelve sons and, as a result of a struggle with God, has received a new name: Israel. Now, following the death of his father Isaac, he settles in the land of Canaan

Romans 10:5-15

Paul has noted that Greeks have attained oneness with God without diligently pursuing it, while Jews have strived for such righteousness without achieving it. Their approach has been through the Law rather than directly with God.

Matthew 14:22-33

Jesus has performed a miracle; he has multiplied loaves and fishes to feed five thousand men, plus women and children. Now he shows to his disciples his power over the chaotic forces of the sea.
