In this podcast episode, we read Genesis 42 from the Good New Translation, Today's English Version. In this story, we see that Joseph was chosen by God to be Governor of Egypt. Joseph was chosen because he was filled with God's Holy Spirit, who gave him greater wisdom and insight than any other person. In addition to being filled with God's Spirit, Joseph was also strongly emotional, and this did not disqualify him from a position of leadership. Ironically, patriarchal theologians have wrongfully accused women of being "too emotional to lead."
