Insights on Today's Reading
Genesis 48 - Jacob gives his blessing on Joseph's children and claims them as his own. He puts the younger, Ephraim, before the older, Manasseh. God has always made sure the right person is placed in the position of leadership and authority.
Genesis 49 - Jacob then gives his blessing/assessment on his twelve sons, rebuking Reuben for his immoral behavior and raising Judah to the most important of his sons. The promised Messiah would come from Judah's line.
Genesis 50 - Jacob dies and Joseph fulfills his wishes to be buried back in Canaan. The brothers fear Joseph's reprisal but he offers them total forgiveness. Joseph dies and the last words of Genesis are: "...he was put in a coffin in Egypt."
