31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything...

“Eventually, a new king came to power in Egypt who knew nothing about Joseph or what he had done" (Exodus 1:8). Historically and culturally, Ancient Egypt is fascinating to me. It was home to one of the oldest civilizations on Earth and was a major...
