Where a catastrophe is a sudden turn of events which results in disaster, a eucatastrophe is a sudden turn of events which results in good. He said that it is the “sudden happy turn in a story which pierces you with a joy which brings tears.” As J.R.R. Tolkien looked at the Bible he saw one big eucatastrophe in fact he said that the incarnation, Jesus becoming human and entering into history, was the eucatastrophe of human history. Because that was the moment where everything starts to change for the better. There’s a grand eucatastrophe in the story of Joseph. I wonder if you can tell what it is.
