The Feast of Weeks or Pentecost was considered a bookend to the Feast of Unleavened Bread/Passover. This feast celebrated God's bountiful wheat harvest. For a people who relied heavily on the farming industry for food, this was a great and joyous time. God's people offer Him thanks for His providential care. And God commands His people to show the same generosity and care for the most vulnerable.
Propitiation. Pete talks about the meaning and consequence of sin and why we need the cross.
In this section we hardly see God mentioned. It’s all about the brothers and their visit to Egypt where they encounter Joseph. But what I’d like us to see is that there are traces of his presence all through the text. And if we see God’s footprints here, we might also see them in our own lives. The Joseph story shows guilt being addressed; it shows a change from lying to truth telling; from godlessness to godliness. And it’s not just an old story – it could well be our story; and the relief we find at the cross of Jesus where guilt is atoned for.
