The following are lightly edited notes on Genesis 3:16 from my ESV Journaling Bible, Interleaved Edition. 3:16: “I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing”: The occasion for greatest joy in life—the birth of a child—will now be accompanied by pain and suffering. This is emblematic of life in this fallen world. Joy is impossible to achieve […]
I’m still working on these videos of my recent trip. Here are a few more. The Day 4 video includes narration. Enjoy!
The following are lightly edited notes on Genesis 3:12-13 from my ESV Journaling Bible, Interlinear Edition. 3:12: “The woman whom you gave to be with me”: Regardless of extenuating circumstances, we must take responsibility for our role in sin—for our contribution to it. The man blames God first, then the woman. The woman blames the serpent. Yet there’s always […]
With some light editing, I wrote the following reflection on Genesis 3:5 in my ESV Journaling Bible, Interleaved Edition. 3:5: “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil”: It’s as if Satan were saying, “What God is asking of you is both […]
Two days ago I was at the Wailing Wall, that portion of the western wall of the Temple in Jerusalem where millions of pilgrims go each year. Some friends asked me to pray for them there. By all means, my prayers for them in Atlanta would be equally effective, but I obliged. I took this […]
“He said to them, ‘Who do you say that I am?’” Matthew 16:15. Here I am at Caesarea Philippi, the place of Peter’s great confession—also the place where Jesus told him, “Get behind me, Satan.” Jesus is patient with us that way. He certainly has been with me! Today he has given me exactly 49 […]
I will add more videos as I have time to make them—between an ambitious itinerary, the effects of jet lag, and unreliable broadband access. But here are the highlights Day 1. I formatted these videos for Twitter, which requires that videos last no longer than one minute. You can follow me on Twitter at @brentlwhite […]
I’m in the Holy Land this week—for the first time since my life-changing experience back in 2011, which has continued to bear fruit in my life and ministry. One completely new (to me) site that I visited is the excavation of the ancient city of Magdala, the hometown of Mary Magdalene (Luke 8:2; Matthew 28:1; […]

With some minor editing, here are my notes from my ESV Journaling Bible, Interleaved Edition. 2:17: “you shall surely die”: i.e., you will begin a process that inevitably leads to physical death, but your spiritual death begins immediately. This is ultimately the only kind of death that matters—to live outside of God’s will, to live against the grain […]
