Is God really in charge? Where is he when everything goes wrong? The Life of Joseph
shows how God can take misfortune and evil and turn it into great good.
Joseph was betrayed by people close to him and had every reason to grow
bitter, yet continued to obey God. And God was working behind the
scenes to change Joseph and his family.
The Life of Joseph
is a easy-to-use, beautifully illustrated guide through God's purposes
in suffering. This pamphlet follows the story of Joseph from the
beginnings of God's promise to Abraham to the reconciliation of Joseph's
family in Egypt. Life of Joseph includes a time line of the
important events in the lives of Joseph and his family, as well as a
family tree of Jacob's (Israel) sons. Life of Joseph also
includes a side-by-side comparison of the dreams Joseph interpreted and
how God was working in the lives of Joseph, Jacob, his brothers, and
Judah to ultimately bring about the promised Messiah, Jesus!
Life of Joseph
helps us see meaning in suffering and aids us in our own journey toward
wisdom. Includes a map and time line. Why is Joseph's story so
compelling? Look at Joseph's life at age 17:
- Favored excessively by his father
- Hated by his 10 older brothers, who had a history of violence and treachery.
- Thrown into a pit in the wilderness
- Sold into slavery and never returned home again.
- His parents were given proof he was dead and no search was instigated
Later, when it appeared his life was improving, he was...
To any observer, it would appear that God had abandoned Joseph. But invisibly God was working behind the scenes.
- Stalked by someone powerful and vengeful
- Falsely accused and imprisoned
- Abandoned in jail without friends or defenders
- Forgotten by people who owed him a favor
Life of Joseph
brings the fascinating story of Jacob, Joseph, and his family to life
and is a resource you will be referring to again and again as you study
the book of Genesis.
