Genesis 46:1 – 47:12
From the age of 17 until the age of 39, Joseph had not seen his loving father. In that time, he had been in a pit, worked for a man named Potiphar, spent time in prison, and then ascended to rule over Egypt with the Pharaoh. In this, one of the most emotional scenes of the entire Bible, the elderly father Jacob/Israel learns that Joseph is alive and travels to embrace and weep over reuniting with his beloved son. How did Joseph’s life go from a horror story to a happy ending? As we will study, he lived in God’s will, healed up at the soul level, and made it his life mission to be a blessing.
