Rabbi David Levine
Parsha: VaYeshev - Genesis 37-40 with additional references to Isaiah 61
The life of Joseph is troubled with family rejection and slavery. But Joseph lives for God in the midst of heart-breaking circumstances. Yeshua's proclamation of the good news of the Kingdom centered first on Isaiah 61, where the prophet says the anointed of God has good news for the broken hearted and those in prison (and others too). Rabbi David shows how Joseph's life of faith connects to the good news proclaimed by Isaiah and demonstrated by Yeshua.
