In this week’s episode: Genesis 48-50.  We examine the coda of the Yosef story and the attempts to tie up all the loose ends in this family drama.  Through the lengthy blessings of the brothers, we look at the convention of blessings in the Tanakh.  And through the brothers’ final ruse, we will consider the importance of the apology as a necessary lubricant in human relations.  And if this reads as repetitive, I am sorry.

ICYMI, the Kickstarter apology can be found here.  Coverage of Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling’s total bullsh&t apology can be found here.  Speaking of bullsh&t apologies, if you have the stomach, why not read coverage about lame offerings from John Sununu and Gareth Evans?  And no discussion about apologies would be complete without a TOP TEN LIST!
