The Big Payback

Jarrett McLaughlin November 22, 2020 Genesis 44 (selections) “The Big Payback” Whether it’s because of your personal Bible reading or Andrew Lloyd Weber’s technicolor dream coat, some of you may be familiar with the story of Joseph.  Not Mary and Joseph – that’s still a few weeks away.  I mean even-further-back Joseph, the son of Jacob, great-grandson to Abraham himself.
