Avaris to Avanim
Pursuing Holiness

Pursuing Holiness

This site is an outlet for my writings that aren't quite ready for a traditionally published work but are meatier than typical social outlets.  Avaris was the capital city of the Hyksos in Egypt, which later became Pi-Ramesses, the probable site mentioned as a store city where the Israelites were enslaved and the starting point of the Exodus. 

When the Israelites crossed the Jordan (Joshua 4:20-24), they left a pile of rocks, avanim, as a memorial monument.  Avaris to Avanim focuses on the theological connections between Holiness, the Ancient Near East, and Christian history.
