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.
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 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.
Genesis 43: Joseph’s brothers return to Egypt with Benjamin.
In part 27 of Abraham’s story you started to talk about the ‘random man’ who gives Joseph a lot of information in 37:15-17. Could you say some more about this odd character?
Today, I discuss Genesis 41, Pharaoh’s two dreams and Joseph’s rise to power in Egypt.
On this episode of the Theopolis podcast, both Peter Leithart and James Jordan are away, so I discuss themes of resurrection in the story of Joseph by myself.
