1a) Now I am sending you to the king of Egypt so that you can lead my people out of his country. But Moses said to God, “I am nobody. How can I go to the king and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” God answered, “I will be with you, and when you bring the people out of Egypt, you will worship me on this mountain. That will be the proof that I have sent you.” But Moses replied, “When I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your ancestors sent me to you,’ they will ask me, ‘What is his name?’ So what can I tell them?” God said, “I am who I am. You must tell them: ‘The one who is called I Am has sent me to you.’ Tell the Israelites that I, the Lord, the God of their ancestors, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, have sent you to them.

After the death of solomon,Rehoboam was made the king of the isrealites.Then the elderly people told him the king Rehoboam to talk to his subject in a polite manner.The king then accepted the elder's advice.The king showed no weakness to his people.The king proclaimed "That his father punished them in a little way but he will torture them with scorpion.That his littlest finger is thicker than my father's loins and your backs shall be broken.Rehoboam then waged war against his people.This leads to its rejection by his people
This story relates how Hosea has three children, a son
called Jezreel, a daughter Lo-Ruhamah and another son
Lo-Ammi. All the names are described in the text as
having symbolic meaning, reflecting the relationship
between God and Israel . Jezreel is named after the valley
of that name . Lo-Ruhamah is named to denote the ruined
condition of the kingdom of Israel and Lo-Ammi is named
in token of God's rejection of his people. Although the
latter two children are not specifically said to be Hosea's,
James Mays says that this is "hardly an implication" of
Gomer's adultery. In 3:1, however, it says that she is
"loved by another man and is an adulteress". Hosea
is told to buy her back, and he does so for 15 shekels and
a quantity of barley. Exodus 21:32 establishes the value of
a maidservant at 30 shekels so Gomer's value is
diminished. She is not mentioned again in the book.
Some analysts, following Felix Ernst Peiser, have
suggested that this marriage is really a figurative or
prophetic reference to a union between the " lost tribes of
Israel " with the people of Gomer, following the Assyrian
The relationship between Hosea and Gomer has been
posited to be a parallel to the relationship between God
and Israel. Even though Gomer runs away from Hosea
and sleeps with another man, he loves her anyway and
forgives her. Likewise, even though the people of Israel
worshiped other gods, God continued to love them and
did not abandon his covenant with them.
According to Kirsten Abbott, feminist interpretation
regards the story of Hosea and his relations with his wife
Gomer as a metaphor for the conflict between a Covenant
Theology (Israel violating the covenant relationship with
YHWH) and a Creation Theology (YHWH will undo the
fertility of the earth in response to Israel following other

Peter In Joppa
A disciple called Tabitha(Dorcas) died.
The disciples was noted for good work
and charity. She made tunics and
garment for widows when she was alive
and this made many of them weep
bitterly over her death. Peter was not in
Lydda, so they sent a message and
invited him. He arrived and went to
Tabitha, knelt down and prayed. Turning
to the body he said, Tabitha rise. She
opened her eyes and sat up. Peter then
lifted her up and called the saints and
presented her alive to them.
