This document considers whether a lengthy period of time elapsed between the time of Joseph interpreting the dream of Pharaoh and the time of the beginning of the years of plenty seven years before the years of famine. I will not be presenting proof of the amount of time between, though I will propose the amount of that time. Instead, I will be investigating evidence regarding such a period of time existing.
While I am writing this document, please keep in mind that Angela Reeves did most of the research for this document, following the evidence trails. In case a reader is wondering whether this document will even be of any interest, I will be giving literal translations of texts, and I will be discussing those texts and the events they describe; so, this document will cover a little more than the abovementioned topic.

Some have discussed with me the points of contrast between modern Christianity and Biblical Christianity. Because the points are so numerous, I have constructed this paper to list many of them and discuss their significances.
Modern Christianity is not merely a right faith with some erroneous theological points; it is a set of faiths that contrast with the Biblical faith, being a set of religions that are as pagan as sun-worship. Conservative Christianity is as included in this as its much more ‘liberal’ cousins. The so-called ‘orthodox’ forms of Christianity are no more Biblically accurate. Each of these starts with a premise that sounds good to many, and then leaves off what makes for Biblical faith.

Religions are anchors for souls. A religion is a system of beliefs, usually including gods and sometimes goddesses, that incorporates morality and ethics and prescribed behaviours for life and living. Religions are anchors for folks whether or not they are true or truth. A person has a personality that is built in, a character that the person determines, and a religion that the person finds useful for living according to the person’s own determined character.
Anyone who attacks the religion of another is attacking the foundation for the person’s character, and is also attacking the very anchor for the person’s soul by which the person is kept from deteriorating into total lawlessness. It is a great evil to attack the religion of another; it is akin to attacking the person, and sometimes to attacking an entire culture. It will cause wars, and is totally unnecessarily.

For several months, I was puzzled about some apparent conflicts concerning the Matthew 1 genealogy that extends from Abraham to Messiah. One major question I had was concerning the omission from this list of four kings of Judah, although they are clearly biologically in this line.

From an Email on Unconditional Love
Question: Would you do something for me? Would you find scriptures for me that prove that Jehovah doesn’t love people unconditionally, and that the ones He does love, He doesn’t love equally?
