Homilies, Musings, and What-not from a Lutheran Pastor
24 March 2009
Have you ever thought
how the story of Judah and Tamar actually heightens the contrast with the story of Joseph's refusal to commit adultery with Potipher's wife? Pity that Treasury skips it. Still, I love the Joseph cycle and all the Christological freight it brings. Great mercy Joseph shows the other brothers because of "Son of my right hand" and so great mercy is likewise shown us through the Son who sits at His right hand!
