What is the church? And what can we liken it to in Genesis 39?
"Now Joseph had been brought down to Egypt,
and Potiphar, a court official of Pharaoh, commander of the guard, an
Egyptian, bought him from the hand of the Ishmaelites who had brought
him down there. And Yahweh was with Joseph..."
"And he was there in prison. And Yahweh was with Joseph..."
Whether the spoiled son of a rich nomadic chief living as an alien on land promised to him or the slave of an officer of a foreign power or a prisoner unjustly incarcerated, the church is defined and known by the company it keeps.
Yahweh is with His church.
"And Jesus approached and spoke to them, saying, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days until the end of the age.”" Matthew 28
