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:
R26;Favored excessively by his father
R26;Hated by his 10 older brothers, who had a history of violence and treachery.
R26;Thrown into a pit in the wilderness
R26;Sold into slavery and never returned home again.
R26;His parents were given proof he was dead and no search was instigated
Later, when it appeared his life was improving, he was...
R26;Stalked by someone powerful and vengeful
R26;Falsely accused and imprisoned
R26;Abandoned in jail without friends or defenders
R26;Forgotten by people who owed him a favor
To any observer, it would appear that God had abandoned Joseph.
But invisibly God was working behind the scenes.
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.
