13 August 2023 – Sunday 19A (51A)

Genesis 37:1-4, 12-28
The brothers’ hatred,
the doting of the father,
imperil Joseph.

Now Joseph’s brothers,
in their hate, conspire to kill
that master of dreams.

It’s a near run thing,
God’s dream and promise survive,
but uncertainly.

There’s a parallel:
the betrayal and sell-out
that Jesus suffered.
    Jeff Shrowder, 2023

* Heb: ‘that master of dreams’
