EXODUS 5:2 OTBDC: Who was the Pharaoh During the Exodus?

The Bible makes reference to various pharaohs of Egypt. These include unnamed pharaohs in events described in the Torah, as well as several later named pharaohs, some of whom were historical or can be identified with historical pharaohs. The identity of Pharaoh in the Moses account has been much debated, but many scholars are inclined to accept that Exodus has King Ramses II in mind. Is this true, or is it another?

PROVERBS 13:22 OTBDC: Is there an absolute obligation for believers to leave an inheritance to their children or grandchildren?

This is in harmony with the apostle Paul’s counsel in I Timothy 5:8 that reads, “But if anyone does not provide for his own, [I.e., relatives] and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” However, Jesus said exhorted us, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth.” (Matt. 6:19). Jesus also said, “Give to everyone who asks you.” (Lu 6:30) The problem comes in when we consider what seems to be conflicting counsel. How do we not store up treasures, and give to everyone who asks, and still acquire enough money to leave an inheritance for our children?
