    61. The Last Shall Be First

    61. The Last Shall Be First

    In the process of reuniting with his brothers, Joseph celebrates the occasion by inviting them to a common meal. Not only does he order them according to the order of their birth, he also serves the youngest brother the biggest portion. In other words, the last shall be first. Join Rowdy and I as we continue our read through of the book of Genesis.

    60. Outsider Messiah

    60. Outsider Messiah

    Continuing our recitation and commentary on the book of Genesis, we point out interesting similarities between Joseph and Cyrus. When it comes to the messiah, everybody expects a homegrown King David, but such a king is never to be found because the iniquity comes from inside the group, not outside. The cancer began in Jacob when he followed the ways of the nachash, and it spread to his murderous children. For their salvation, it takes the humiliation of having their God save them via a foreign agent. Let us be attentive!
