John Lennox on the Story of Joseph

According to Oxford mathematician John Lennox, the account of Joseph’s rise to power in the latter part of Genesis, which leads to the climactic moment in which he reveals himself to his brothers and publicly forgives them, “is one of the most moving scenes in all the world’s literature.” On this episode, Shane Rosenthal talks with professor Lennox about the implications of this amazing story, as well as other important scenes from the book of Genesis which he has written about in his book, Joseph: A Story of Love, Hate, Slavery, Power and Forgiveness.
