Today, I discuss a few of the echoes of the Genesis narrative in later stories in Scripture.
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?
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 36 and Edom as Israel’s twin.
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.
Jacob encounters Rachel at the well and marries Rachel and Leah.
I comment on Genesis 28 and Jacob’s Ladder.
Today, I comment on Genesis 24 and the quest for a bride for Isaac.
