Item description for Joseph, Wise and Otherwise: The Intersection of Wisdom and Covenant in Genesis 37-50 [Paternoster Biblical Monographs] by Lindsay Wilson...

This book offers a careful literary reading of Genesis 3750 that argues that the Joseph story contains both strong covenant themes and many wisdomlike elements. The author examines how these "wisdomlike elements" relate to the story as a whole. Chapter 37 establishes that God will cause Joseph to rise to prominence. The intriguing story of Tamar in chapter 38 is seen as a kind of microcosm of the entire Joseph story, with Tamar securing life, justice, and reconciliation through her wise initiatives, leading ultimately to the preservation of the line of promise. Joseph's public use of wisdom is considered in chapters 3941, where he uses power successfully and with discernment. Joseph's private use of wisdom occupies chapters 4245, as Joseph brings about change in his brothers and extends forgiveness to them. Chapters 4650 complete the story by weaving the concerns of the previous chapters into the fabric of God's purposes for his covenant people.
