The climax of the entire book of Genesis comes down to this. Jacob is finally well settled in Goshen and dies peacefully while Joseph and his brothers continue their efforts to honor their father’s legacy and reconcile everything for all time. But looming large in the prophetic distance is a future time that Joseph sees when all of them will have to get up out of Egypt and go back to Canaan, taking Joseph’s body with them. Exodus is just around the corner!
It’s Moshe’s Greatest Hits (On the Ground that is)! This week Moshe really bares his soul and in an unprecedented display of candor (or a lack of patience, you be the judge), Moshe reveals how he really felt as a disaster was unfolding all around him. Perhaps at the time he did not have a moment to care about how hurt he was, but now he reveals all to the new generation of Israelites and some of those revelations are truly shocking!
