True & Better
The bible is not a series of disconnected stories

There is a true and better Abel who, though innocently slain, has blood that cries out, not for our condemnation, but for our acquittal.
There is a true and better Abraham who answered the call of God to leave all the comfortable and familiar and go out into the void to create a new people of God.
There is a true and better Isaac, the son of laughter, of grace, who was not just offered up by his father on the mount but was truly sacrificed for us all.
There is a true and better Jacob who wrestled and took the blow of justice we deserved, so we, like Jacob, only receive the wounds of grace that wake us up and discipline us.
There is a true and better Joseph who, at the right hand of the king, forgives those who betrayed and sold him and uses his new power to save them.
There is a true and better Moses who stands in the gap between the people and the Lord a
