Genesis 3 is a story of sin, transgression, rebellion, defiance, and treason. It’s also a story of fig leaves, hide and seek, and blame. Rather than taking the path of confession, Adam and Eve chose the path of sewing fig leaf clothing, hiding from the presence of God, and blaming others for their sin.
When I read the story of Joseph, I’m always struck by his obedience and faithfulness. Certainly I don’t want to make Joseph “the” hero of the story. He is, however, remarkably obedient and faithful once he arrives in Egypt.
