This podcast marks the start of a new series about Patriarchy. We’ll look at the lives of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and their days walking with God in a world that had exchanged him for many little gods. This episode is and introduction to patriarchy.
The first eleven chapters of Genesis are a narrative about the beginning and the early history of man, and his rebellion and the wrath of God. Now the author is giving us a narrative of the descendants of Seth and reflecting on how God raised up a nation through the faith of one patriarch, Abram, and how he wanted to be involved in every area of Abram’s life.
I define patriarchy, and talk about agrarian societies. I’ve taken an excerpt from my book, What Every Woman Should Know, from the third chapter, Patriarchy. I’ll just say right now, that this book has been separated into two volumes and expanded and the second volume is about to be released. If you want to know more about patriarchy and how if affected women, you might want to take a look at this book! You can find it at Writeious Books or on Amazon.
For so many years, reading and re-reading the Bible, I just didn’t understand why God would create a patriarchal system along with some of the laws. Until writing this book, I hadn’t the knowledge or understanding of society in the past, of patriarchy and households, of all that was taking place around Abraham in a world where people only longed to do evil. Nor did I understand the beauty and care that God used when putting the law together to be in harmony with the laws already established by men and the human condition we were under.
Join me in this inaugural episode of the Patriarchy podcast series by SamSword. I’m the face behind the voice. I hope to serve you up some food for thought and that you’ll have a little snack and will come back for more!
