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 49 and Israel’s prophetic statements concerning his twelve tribes.
What’s the significance of David and Jonathan’s friendship? Is there something more significant in terms of redemptive history or biblical theology that warrants it being highlighted so frequently and with such strong terms?
I discuss Genesis 48 and Jacob’s faith in blessing the sons of Joseph.
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.
I discuss Genesis 45, as Joseph reveals himself to his brothers and Jacob discovers that his son is alive.
Joseph’s missing silver cup having been found in the possession of Benjamin, Judah intercedes for him to Joseph.
