Genesis 48 - 50

Genesis
GenesisSteve Gregg

In this presentation, Steve Gregg explores the final chapters of Genesis, which focus on the family business being taken care of before Jacob's death. Jacob blesses his sons, who become the heads of the twelve tribes of Israel, but the interpretation of the blessings is somewhat difficult to understand. Other topics discussed include the division of the nation of Israel, the disqualification of some sons from the birthright, and the prophecy of the Messiah or Jesus Christ in relation to the tribe of Judah. Throughout the story of Joseph, we see forgiveness and the theme that God can use even harm for good.
