Joseph is Reconciled

Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C, Old Testament
Scripture: Genesis 45: 3-11, 15

Today we depart from our prophet lineage to catch up with a story from the first book of the Bible at its climax. The long saga of Joseph and his brothers is about to come to an end. Joseph does share many traits with the prophets. In addition to foretelling the future, he attributes his crazy circumstances to God’s ultimate care. His faith in God changes how he views his situation. And it informs how he chooses to treat his family. Today’s focus is on forgiveness.

Scripture: Luke 6:27-38
