  • God's plan of redemption began long before Abraham... consider rephrasing this... the protoevengelion is with the promises to Eve and the seed of the woman

Journey Through The Bible - 2 - Genesis Part 2

  1. 1. Journey Through the Bible 2 Abraham to Joseph Readings: Genesis 17:1-8, 15-22 (page 11) Hebrews 11:8-19 (page 851) 1
  2. 2. Journey through the Bible Genesis 1 - 11 - the origins of the world as we know it Genesis 12-50 - the history of one family that became the nation of Israel 2
  3. 3. God’s plan of redemption begins Genesis 12:3 “all peoples on earth will be blessed through You.” “which You have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to Your people Israel.” (Luke 2:31–32, NIV84) 3
  4. 4. God’s plan of redemption begins “The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”” (Genesis 12:1–3, NIV84) 4
  5. 5. Abraham’s walk with God Two things to watch for Gen. 12-24 Abram made great leaps of faith and was obedient. In times of doubt he tried to do things his own way which end badly. 5
  6. 6. The Bible history Does not gloss over people’s failures and weaknesses Just because something is recorded in the Bible does not mean that God approves of it. Despite their weakness and failings God still uses people to carry out His plan. 6
  7. 7. The Bible history This, then, is the family line of Perez: Perez was the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Ram, Ram the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, Nahshon the father of Salmon, Salmon the father of Boaz, Boaz the father of Obed, Obed the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of David. (Ruth 4:13–22, NIV84) 7
  8. 8. God deals with real men and women Genesis 24-38 God intervenes at critical moments in people’s lives. The “heroes” of the faith (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob) don’t often call on God nor ask for help. They devise their own dishonest plans and get into bigger problems. 8
  9. 9. Joseph ruler of Egypt: Genesis 39-50 When someone does right and trusts God He rewards them for their faithfulness. Joseph’s honesty and moral courage result in prison. God used his sufferings to bring him into a position of power. 9
  10. 10. Joseph is a type of Christ God used the sin of others and innocent suffering to bring about salvation for Joseph’s own people and many nations. Jesus was the innocent victim of others sins but through His suffering He gained salvation for all peoples. 10
