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.
I discuss Genesis 49 and Israel’s prophetic statements concerning his twelve tribes.
James Bejon and I discuss Genesis 46 and the descent of Jacob into Egypt.
Joseph’s missing silver cup having been found in the possession of Benjamin, Judah intercedes for him to Joseph.
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.

Today, I discuss the sale of Joseph into Egypt.
Today, I discuss Genesis 35, as Jacob journeys southward in stages from Shechem to Hebron. This passage is punctuated by the deaths of Deborah, Rachel, and Isaac, the birth of Benjamin, and the rebellion of Reuben.
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.
