In this last parasha of Genesis we study the death of Joseph and see how this was foretold from the beginning of his story in chapter 37. We focus our study on the various teachings found in Genesis regarding life - and more specifically, eternal life - from Sarah through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. We then study Jacob's prophecies in chapter 49 which speak very directly of the mystery of Christmas and of the babe born to whom shall be the gathering of nations. Finally we return to Joseph's death and his coffin which will be key to understanding the mystery of the tabernacle, of the Temple and eventually of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
