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.
I discuss Genesis 33 and the reconciliation of Jacob and Esau.
This transcription of the second part of my series on the story of the family of Abraham was transcribed by Lorraine O’Neal. If you would be interested in her transcription services—for sermons, lectures, talks, or something else—you can contact her here.
I would very much like to provide transcripts for all of my videos, but I will require more support for this to be affordable. If you would like to help to make this possible, please consider supporting or donating using my Patreon or PayPal accounts. New sponsorship and donations are being earmarked for this specific purpose.
In the third part of my study of the story of Abraham and his family, I discuss Abram’s sojourn in the land of Egypt, his journeys in Canaan, and his separation from Lot.
