McConville, J Gordon (2013) Forgiveness as Private and Public Act: a Reading of the Biblical Joseph Narrative. Catholic Biblical Quarterly, 75 (4). pp. 635-648. ISSN 0008-7912Full text not available from this repository.
The article examines forgiveness as a private and public act in the context of the biblical Joseph narrative in the Book of Genesis 37-50. It considers the story of trajectory from familial relationships and the restoration of unity and integrity. It investigates the relationship between the private or inner world of the characters and the public world in which Joseph wields supreme power in Egypt. It explores whether the narrative's speech is a reliable guide to the inner life of characters.
