S2E11 - Israel's Blessings

We say goodbye to Jacob AKA Israel AKA Daddy, and finally finish the book of Genesis

Episode Notes

We say goodbye to Daddy Jacob, and in his final moments he blesses all of his sons--though some of them seem a little more like curses to us. We follow Jacob and Joseph to the ends of their lives in Egypt, and that's where we leave the Israelite tribe at the end of the Book of Genesis. We discuss family forgiveness as queer people, and draw on not only Joseph but also Saint Dolly Parton to explore dynamics of power and grace in the act of forgiving and coming out.

Next time in the Season Finale, we'll discuss the entire book of Genesis with special guest Joy Ladin! Looking forward to see you then!
