This Bible Study, part of The Bible and Your Work Study Series, works through Genesis 34-50 and offers biblical guidance for everyday life. Christians in the workplace will appreciate examining the themes of conflict, leadership, and calling that are found in this study guide.
Godís threefold covenant to Abraham ends with a promise that his descendants will be a blessing to all nations. The end of Genesis traces the partial fulfillment of this promise through the chosen lines of Abrahamís descendants, specifically through his great-grandson Joseph.
This third and final study on the book of Genesis follows Joseph from his lowest point, being sold to slavery by his brothers, to his greatest achievement, ďthe saving of many livesĒ (Gen. 50:20) as the second-in-command of Egypt. This study wrestles with several tough issues and cites Joseph as an example of how to deal with conflicts and feelings of futility, what it means to be a leader as a Christian, and how we should discern Godís call on our lives and go about accomplishing his will.
These Bible studies are part of The Bible and Your Work Study Series. Each book contains Scripture references, thought-provoking questions, and prayers to help you explore what the Bible says about work and apply it to your life in positive, practical ways. The lessons in each chapter are designed for thirty-minute lunch breaks, although they can be used in other formats as well.
