    ANDY sent us his note: "First of all I have to say that I'm really happy with the way the podcast is going. It continues to be a fantastic source of insight and inspiration for me. Just a minor question: I'm always a little surprised that Potiphar sent Joseph to prison because I would have thought that he would have had the power to have Joseph killed. Is this an example of the Lord's protection of Joseph through Potiphar really liking Joseph too much to see him dead? Cheers and blessya all Andy"

    085 Thrive Deeper: Questions & Genesis 41

    We try to cover some of your Genesis questions this week!

    From Jack S:
    ...regarding Jacob and whom he shall marry... he cannot marry the Canaanite women as the children/offspring would then not be Jewish. The Jewishness comes from the mother and the name/family comes from the father. If a non-jewish man marries a Jewish woman, the children will be Jewishand conversely if a jewish man marries a non-Jewish woman the children are non Jewish. still to this day.

    From Benjamin:
    Man's days will be 120 years.
    In listening to the podcast it sounds that this has been understood as shortening the maximum lifespan of people. (This comes across clearly in the NLT translation). I used to understand it that way
    However other translations like ESV are less clear and it seems more likely in context to be meaning 120 years until the flood comes?

    3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not put up with humans for such a long time, for they are only mortal flesh. In the future, their normal lifespan will be no more than 120 years." NLT

    3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” ESV

    From Natalie B:
    I want to say how profound the space (thrive deeper podcast) is providing for me. You bring such honest knowledge, both studied and personal, with humility and kindness. Building faith in Jesus and expanding my understandings, my questioning. Bringing clarity of heart and mind. Thank you.

    From Corey Sleap:
    Abrahams faith in the God that resurrects made him righteous. see Romans 4:17 As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not. | New International Version (NIV)

    Who was resurrected between adam and Abraham?
    What example of resurrection is Abrahams faith based on?
