Exodus 20 The Ten Commandments And God spoke all these words: 2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 3 “You shall have no other gods before me. 4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. 7 “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name. 8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. 12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you. 13 “You shall not murder. 14 “You shall not commit adultery. 15 “You shall not steal. 16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. 17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

We begin EXODUS! Here is the Bible Project's great video on the beginning of Exodus: LOVE YOUR questions! You can send them to us directly at 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" Also head over to and use the code "THRIVETODAY" to get $10 off your subscription!SEE YOU IN A FORTNIGHT!

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?

Questions: from the thriving facebook group: Kellyanne C. "Catching up on podcasts from a few weeks back. Matt’s sermons on Genesis say we are created in God’s image and this alludes to us being God’s children. I’m confused- are all human beings God’s children? Or only those who come to faith in Christ? Why would the New Testament say we (believers) have been adopted into God’s family if we already belonged to God’s family?" Cheryne B. "What is light? It was created before the sun so it isn't really physical light. In the past when I read 1st John - I assumed that light is God, but if God created light then it isn't God is it? What is it exactly? Like I understand what it is to live in the light and what it is to live in darkness, but it is something God created and it kind of puzzled me a bit." Kristi B. "Did Adam and eve ever eat from the tree of life? Genesis 2:9 and Genesis 3:22" Meg T. "A) were we, in fact, actually made flawed? We had a choice to eat from the wrong tree or not, and we were so weak that on first temptation we folded and gave in to the temptation. So were we made flawed? Weak? God knew we were going to do it, why? Did we ever stand a chance or did we always have evil in us? How can something God made be inherently evil from the very Beginning? In that case, what is the point of anything? B ) would anything have happened differently if Adam and Eve had if owned up to God the instant they sinned? Or would things have still unfolded the same way because man was so weak and hid?" And an announcement that we will be starting a new podcast in 2020 "Thrive: Topics"!
