This is the tension setter that is finally resolved in Gen 50:20. When Joseph says, “As for you, what you meant for evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring about that God should save many people, as they are today.” We close by drawing the analogy of Joseph and the life of the believer today. We are also hated by our brethren, and yet loved by our Father, who is in Heaven. Please join us as we enter into the family life of Jacob, Joseph, and his brothers in Genesis 37:2-5
