Last Spring, I began working on a study guide to be used as a family before, during, and after the Spring feasts. The goal is to outline a fun Bible study that takes the family on the journey with the Israelites out of Egypt into the wilderness, and through to the Feast of Weeks, at the same time you also travel with Yeshua and His disciples into Jerusalem, to their final meal together, to the Mount of Olives, to the cross, and the day of Pentecost.
Last year, we read several children’s story books, as well as, Tirzah by Lucille Travis, Amon’s Adventure by Arnold Ytreeide. We also used The Chronological Gospels by Michael Rood to read the life of Messiah from the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. We read the Exodus story from the the books of Exodus and Numbers in our Bibles, and we also read through the book of Romans.
We created maps, calendars, and timelines together to help us truly experience the journey the Israelites were on, as well as the disciples and Yeshua.
I have decided to take notes here on my blog as we work through this journey again this Spring. I decided to start our study this year on the first day of Spring on the Gregorian calendar. I like to show my children the different calendars and explain them each morning before we start our day.
Today, is Sunday, March 27, 2022 on our Gregorian calendar. This week we will focus on the fall of man, the call to train up Godly offspring, and the families of Moses and Yeshua, Yeshua’s Heritage and Divinity.
Last week, we began reading the story of Exodus in the book, With a Mighty Hand by Amy Ehrlich. We read and discussed the birth of Moses and of Yeshua, as well as, the birth of John the Baptist. We read the story of creation in Genesis chapters 1 and 2. We discussed what these all have in common and why it is important to remember these stories as we prepare for Passover and Resurrection Sunday (First Fruits).
We will use the book With a Mighty Hand again this week, and we will also use several story books from our family bookshelves to reinforce the stories and lessons.

Genesis 3-4 Sin and Death, Deuteronomy 5-6 Law and Life
