How could God make something beautiful out of this? What good could come of this pain, this past, this sin, this disaster?
As Joseph sat in his prison cell, betrayed yet again by a person close to him, he must have wondered about God’s purposes for his pain. Yet God was at work. Joseph was exactly where he needed to be in God’s plan for him to save many lives.
In this five-week study, unpack the incredible story of Joseph’s rise from tending livestock as one of twelve sons to ruling as the second most powerful man in Egypt that would change the course of history. Experience God at work in Genesis 37-50 to bring redemption to the most hopeless situations.
In week one, watch the crisis unfold as family tensions build to disaster in Genesis 37-38. Favoritism and rivalry among Jacob’s ten oldest sons led them to attack and sell their younger brother. How could they have known that this act of betrayal was God’s plan unfolding?
In weeks two and three, experience Joseph’s complicated path from slavery to favor. Throughout Genesis 39-42, God’s perfect timing is on display as Joseph faithfully serves God through trials, leaning on God’s wisdom for every choice.
In weeks four and five, trace the tension from Genesis 43-50 as Joseph and his brothers are reunited. Will the brothers recognize the powerful man who holds their fate as the brother they once discarded? Will Joseph take the opportunity to repay their evil with vengeance?
