“Facebook” and “MySpace” are fun ways for us to keep in touch and communicate with our friends. It is also a place where people can get to know each other from the information we post about ourselves.

Now we have met many people from the Old Testament since the beginning of the semester. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to choose one of the characters we’ve met so far in our journey through the Old Testament and create what you think their “Facebook” page would look like if they were around today.

The characters we’ve met so far are:
God, Adam, Eve, The Serpent, Cain, Abel, Noah, Noah’s wife, his 3 sons (you should know their names!), one of the “builders” from the Tower of Babel, Abraham (Abram), Sarah (Sarai), one of Abraham’s “visitors”, Hagar, Ishmael, Isaac, Abraham’s servant (Fred or Bob), Rebekah, Laban, Jacob, Esau, Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, Bilhah, Reuben, Joseph, Benjamin, Potiphar, Pharoah

If you think of a different character you’d like to do, let me know!
