Picture of the Week 04/21/17

We assume that the older brother in the Parable of the Prodigal Son was the one with the birthright, but what if the father had given it to the younger brother? If that’s the case, then redemption takes on a whole new level of meaning.

    1. That’s what happened to me when I saw it. By the way, Jeremiah 31 is the “New Covenant” chapter, and Hebrews 8 is the only other place where that text is quoted. So what does that tell you about being “grafted in” to Israel?


  1. Definitely mindbending… making me ponder Yeshua’s role as Redeemer, both individual and CORPORATE, as well as Yosef’s role being ejected from the family, but ultimately being the one who saves and protects the family during Jacob’s troubles. May we learn the example of penitent meekness from both toward Judah!
