Hello there and welcome to the Open Our Bibles Together podcast! I am so happy you are here and joining me today as we once again continue our studies in the book of Genesis. BUUTTT can we just pause to take a moment to celebrate the big 4-O?? Well, OOBT’s 40th episode anyway! LOL!
I am super humbled and oh so very excited to still be studying alongside each one of you … now 40 episodes later… so so good! OK, enough of that…how about we set down our confetti to now return our attention to Joseph and his father Jacob.
We start off our studies today with Jacob responding to God’s calling with these words…. “Here I am.” Wow. How touching that God chooses to lean in at this very moment to speak reassurances to Jacob as he is packing up + setting out with his family and belongings to make the 450-mile journey to Egypt. The God With Jacob is the same God With Us today. Beautiful. Just beautiful my friends.
Truthfully, there’s so much more I could say about Episode 40 but how about instead I just let you listen in for yourselves? LOL! Seriously though, be sure you don’t miss this one! (And yes, I am aware that I probably say that with every episode release, but I actually mean it each time as well… I discover so much on these thin, crinkly pages that I can’t wait to share with all one of you!) I love our times together so much my OOBTers!
// Show Notes //
In studying the Restless book by Jennie Allen, I came across these questions to help us as we take a deep dive into Joseph’s story as found in Genesis 37-50.
- Describe the journey to Joseph’s purpose.
- Describe Joseph’s attitude throughout his journey.
- How might he have felt in the decades of suffering?
- What do you think God’s perspective on Joseph’s suffering was?
