Red Letter Genesis, chapters 36-50
[Genesis 36-45 tells the genealogy of Esau, and the story of Israel’s twelve sons. Read the incredible story of betrayal, dream interpretation, how a brother is sold into slavery and becomes a leader in a strange land – a story of forgiveness, restoration and survival in times of famine. Genesis 36-45]
And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beer-sheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac.
And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.
And He said I am God, the God of thy father: Fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:
I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.
And it came to pass after these things, that one told Joseph, Behold, thy father is sick: and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim…
And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me.
And said unto me, Behold, I will multiply thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession.
[Jacob blesses Joseph and prophesies over his 11 brothers. Pharaoh, the leader of Egypt, shows respect to Joseph and his family. Read more here: Genesis 46-50]
