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 49 and Israel’s prophetic statements concerning his twelve tribes.
I discuss Genesis 48 and Jacob’s faith in blessing the sons of Joseph.
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.
