    based on 5 ratings

    There is pain in family relationships. Jacob’s emptiness created Benjamin, the zero. Judah repeats parental manipulation. But Joseph shows that God’s grace can turn family pain into accomplishment.

    The emotional scene we are about to confront comes out of a long history of deals and double deals.

    Contributed by Richard Futrell on Oct 7, 2010
    based on 6 ratings
