Welcome to Coat of Many Colors, Joe Pranevich’s humble blog about religion and the bible.
The original mission of this blog was as a place for me to document my thoughts and reactions as I reread the Torah, the first five books of the Bible – Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. That lasted about a month. Since then, I have been reading and commenting on my own pace, discussing and digesting the stories of the bible piece by piece. Along the way, I take detours off into discussions about holidays, biblical genealogy, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and pretty much whatever interests me at the time. This is not a devotional blog. You will not find me waxing poetic about articles of faith, but rather attempting an intellectual approach.
Although my studies tend toward Jewish sources, I am not myself Jewish. (My wife is, though!) I have no formal training in theology or really much of anything. All I have is an open mind, a keyboard, and a heck of a large collection of bibles and religious commentary…
I hope you enjoy my foray into wherever this adventure takes me!
Joe Pranevich is a writer, technologist, and a geek. By day, he heads up technology at an well-known internet portal.

He’s also a former technology writer whose work has appeared in several magazines including Linux Journal, LanLine, Byte (Russia), and others, as well as a paid contributor to Linux Today.
Joe has absolutely no qualifications for writing this blog except a long-standing curiosity and love of religious studies and, apparently, too much time on his hands.
