Joseph 1 - Jealous Brothers, Jealous Wives
Today we began a new series called "biblical biographies," which is actually several month long mini-series on various biblical figures from both Testaments.
Our first three-week miniseries focuses on the Patriarch Joseph from the book of Genesis. Looking at Genesis chapters 30, 37, and 39, we walk with Joseph through his two great deprivations, first sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, then wrongly accused by the jealous wife of his master and thrown in prison. In both cases, his humiliation is symbolized by the stripping of his garments. Does Joseph learn anything from these injustices? And where is God throughout all this?
