This is Bill’s commentary on the portion, Vayigash – “and he approached.” In all of the Torah, there is perhaps no other portion that speaks so prophetically as this one. In this sidrah, the rejected one, Joseph, now ruler of Egypt, reveals himself to his despairing brothers. In short, he is effectively “resurrected” before their very eyes and, as a result, all of Israel is saved. There is so much in this teaching that a summary here is nearly impossible. Some highlights:
- How Judah typifies Messiah (yes, Judah).
- How Goshen symbolizes the “place prepared of God” in Revelation 12.
- Why the Egyptian sojourn had to happen.
- Much more – approximately 75 minutes.
