Transquotation: Genesis 43:1-4

24 Jan

Hello again!

This is what God gave me today in His word:


Now the famine was severe in the land. And when they had eaten the grain that they had brought from Egypt, their father said to them, “Go again, buy us a little food.” But Judah said to him, “The man solemnly warned us, saying, ‘You shall not see my face unless your brother is with you.’ If you will send our brother with us, we will go down and buy you food. (Genesis 43:1-4)


We had no Spiritual food, we were dying. Unconquerable sin in our lives caused a Spiritual famine: we were without hope! Yet, then God sent His son, which He dearly loved, to earth, to become a sacrifice for us. Through Him, we have forgiveness of sins, and through Him, our wants our changed. Where once we wanted the sand of Satan, now we want the living water of our savior.

Explanation of the transquote:

When it all boils down, this is what get: Jesus has saved us. He’s set us free from our sinful nature. We still have flesh while we’re on this Earth, but Jesus has also given us the promise that ‘this too shall pass’. — It’s summed up in this equation:

God sent His son, Jesus. + Jesus gives living water. = No more famine in our souls.

New Testament confirmation:

 4 Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; (M)sin is lawlessness. 5 You know that (N)he appeared in order to (O)take away sins, and (P)in him there is no sin. 6 No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; (Q)no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. (1 John 3:4-6)

Context confirmation:

But if you will not send him, we will not go down, for the man said to us, ‘You shall not see my face, unless your brother is with you.'” (Genesis 43:5)

They could get bread of their brother was with them, whereas they couldn’t if he wasn’t. Rather obvious, perhaps, but it still supports the transquote. — This supports the transquote by strengthening the connection in this passage between Benjamin and Jesus.

You are Loved!
