I apologize that there is no new post for vayigash this week. We had a family emergency when Sabbath ended last week which is just now being resolved, so I trust I will be back to my regularly scheduled life and blog posting for next week.
The paragraph divisions and complete chiastic structure formed by vayigash is posted here.
The end of vayigash ends in a strong paragraph, the strong theme running from Gen 41:1-47:27. This strong theme also forms its own complete chiastic structure, which is posted here.
The extent of Judah’s transformation is discussed here. The logic of the paragraph divisions and how their unusual placement highlights Judah’s transformation and is prophetic of Messiah, is discussed here.
