Rev. Samuel Wirgau studies Genesis 37:12-36 regarding what leads to the evils carried out by Joseph’s brothers, why this planned premeditated murder is especially heinous, why God allows this to happen, how we see Jesus in this text, and how this story fits into the salvation story.
Rev. Gaven Mize studies Genesis 37:2b-11 regarding the chiastic structure of these verses, whether God uses dreams to speak, how Joseph’s narrative is a capstone to Genesis, how Joseph is the most “Christ-like” patriarch, and symbols in revelations and apocalypses.
Rev. Jeremiah Johnson studies Genesis 35:16-37:2a regarding the messianic prophecy in Micah and its relation to this text, the lust for power, the death of Isaac and hardships of Jacob, why these Biblical genealogies are important to the bigger story, and the inheritance promised to Abraham.
