Joseph

Salvation in Technicolour

Joseph - Salvation in TechnicolourThe account of Joseph is given in the book of Genesis chapters 37-50.  This autumn we will be studying this part of the old testament.  Sunday services, life groups as well as children and youth groups will all be looking at the story of Joseph and what it has to teach us.

We will discover that how the story develops has more to do with God's involvement than the detailed actions and choices of Joseph and the other characters.  There are three main themes which help to make sense of what takes place:

  1. God's promise to Abraham and then to Jacob, Joseph's father, that their descendants would have great land, be a great nation, would be blessed and be a blessing to the whole world; (The big question was whether God could keep his promise despite the problems and actions which transpired.)
  2. God's providence, or in other words God's intervention and care for his people;
  3. God's reconciliation, bringing together a rather disfunctional family back into a good relationship with each other and himself.

As we follow and study the account of Joseph and what took place we will see that these three themes are linked quite tightly and recur throughout the story.
