Get the Full Version

SUNDAY SCHOOL LADY

Primeval history was the first 11 chapters of Genesis. The rest of Genesis is “Patriarchal History.” Pastor Paul – what is a “patriarch?”

IAN

I know this one!

CLIVE

Ian, what are you doing?

IAN

I know this one.

If you have a lot of donuts or danishes and there is a flood, you need to big boat to save them. That boat is called a “Pastry Ark.”

CLIVE

You’re kidding me, right?

SUNDAY SCHOOL LADY

I didn’t say “pastry ark,” I said “patriarch.” Pastor Paul?

IAN

I thought I had that one.

CLIVE 

He’s not with me.

PASTOR PAUL

Ahem. Yes. A “Patriarch” is the male head – or father – of a family.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LADY

What if it’s the mother?

PASTOR PAUL

Then it’s a “matriarch.”

SUNDAY SCHOOL LADY

Well, whadya know! So patriarchal history is the story of God working through a series of fathers to SAVE THE WORLD!
