2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”

Real Repentance


Touring through Jesus’ Bible we can learn much about repentance from Jacob’s firstborn son Reuven. But before we start, please find your Bible and read Genesis 42:1-22. If we remember back to the beginning of the story of Joseph, Reuven is the one who talked his brothers out of killing Joseph and intended to bring him back to his father. While Reuven was gone for a short time, the other brothers sold Joseph into slavery.

Rejected to preserve life


Have you ever noticed that there are several parallels between Joseph’s life and mission and the life and mission of Messiah Jesus? For example, compare and consider Genesis 45:1-15 and Paul’s letter to the Romans in Romans 11:1-27. Please grab your Bible at this point and read both passages.
