Genesis 45: 1-15

Romans 11: 1-2a, 29-32

All Will Be Revealed

In these last chapters of the Joseph story, we see that God has been at work all along in the events of Joseph’s life. God has not spoken to Joseph directly as he did to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; but God has been at work behind the scenes, so to speak, preserving life in spite of (and even by means of) human sin. The descendants of Abraham (and all humanity) continue to be deeply flawed, but through it all, God fulfills God’s promises and provides for God’s creation.
