Genesis: Weird–Joseph’s boss: Potifar. Joseph’s father-in-law: Potiphera.
Are there any other Biblical dreams repeated twice? Seven, seven years…seen again in Daniel and Revelation. It is so awesome that Joseph had and interpreted dreams and saw their fulfillment throughout his lifetime. Like Job, he lost everything to gain more. I wonder if Joseph messed w/ his brothers to test them, to see if they had learned their lesson about selling the favorite son into slavery (in this case, Benjamin)? Chapter 45: 5 “Now do not be grieved or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life. 6 “For the famine has been in the land these two years, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. 7 “God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant in the earth, and to keep you alive by a great deliverance. 8 “Now, therefore, it was not you who sent me here, but God ; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh and lord of all his household and ruler over all the land of Egypt.” Now, that is some positive thinking.
Job: More from Job, then from a new guy…Elihu.
