In this, the final part of my series on the story of the family of Abraham, I discuss what relevance it might have for us today.
Today, I discuss a few of the echoes of the Genesis narrative in later stories in Scripture.
Chapter 50 of Genesis gives a lot of attention to the embalming and burial of bodies. Within this episode I explore why this is.
I discuss Genesis 47, as Joseph introduces Pharaoh to his brothers and father, we hear the continued events of the famine, and Joseph promises to bury Jacob in Canaan.
James Bejon and I discuss Genesis 46 and the descent of Jacob into Egypt.
Genesis 43: Joseph’s brothers return to Egypt with Benjamin.
Peter Leithart is away this week, so I did the podcast by myself, discussing the Ten Plagues.
