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.
Within this episode, I reflect upon the significance of the dimensions of Noah’s Ark.
I discuss Genesis 33 and the reconciliation of Jacob and Esau.
Today, I discuss Genesis 32, where Jacob prepares to encounter Esau and wrestles with God at the Jabbok.
I discuss Genesis 31, where God appears to Jacob, Jacob flees from the house of Laban, Rachel takes Laban’s teraphim, and Laban and Jacob make a covenant.
Today I discuss a couple of the strangest episodes in the story of Genesis: Rachel’s request for some of Leah’s mandrakes and Jacob’s taking of Laban’s flocks using—among other things—poplar rods.
