Genesis 45:1-15: Joseph, who had been sold by his brothers to slavery in Egypt, makes himself known to them when they visit on behalf of their father.
Matthew 15: 21-28: Jesus is confronted by the faith of a Canaanite woman and marvels at the faith of this woman who is an outsider.
In todays’ reading from Genesis, we see God at work in a dysfunctional situation bringing good out of bad and life out of death. Joseph shows forgiveness towards his brothers and offers his family refuge from the famine. The victim becomes the Saviour, very much as Jesus did on the Cross of Calvary.
