Today, I discuss a few of the echoes of the Genesis narrative in later stories in Scripture.
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 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.
Today, I discuss the abduction of Dinah in Genesis 34 and the violent response of Levi and Simeon.
