Teachings from Rabbi David Levine and Beth Israel Messianic Synagogue in Jacksonville, Florida.

His brothers did not recognize him

December 8, 2007

Parsha: Miketz - Genesis 41:1-44:17 with John 10:22-25

Rabbi David Levine

The Torah reading at Hanukkah is always about Joseph. So it always tells the story of a Jewish man rejected by his brothers, misunderstood and  mistreated by them, how that man is forgotten by his Jewish family, and how the very ones who reject him are most depending on his mercy, and don’t even know it.

Rabbi David Levine compares the treatment of Joseph with the treatment Yeshua received at Hanukkah in Jerusalem when he spoke about being the Messiah.
