Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Egyptian Polytheism

In our Tapestry of Grace week 3 studies, we read from the Bible about the plagues and the Exodus. The kids studied how each plague was a judgment on various Egyptian gods. Here are pictures of Lane's drawings of the plagues. Several of the pictures also depict the Egyptian god or goddess that God--YHWH--was showing power over.

Are you finding your BSF studies from last year are coming in handy in teaching this topic?

I like the way Lane's picture of the LORD has a smile on his face as he passes over the houses of the Israelites, which have the blood of the Passover Lamb on their lintels.

Yes, the BSF studies are very helpful, both to me as a teacher and to the kids as students. We'll be racing through the Pentateuch with our history studies this year, and it feels like a breakneck pace. In the first nine weeks were coving the Pentateuch plus secular history of Egypt and Mesopotamia.

Hello there.
Nothing to do with Egyptian Polytheism, but I have just tagged you for a recipe meme. Do you have a recipe to share?
Hope you are doing well.
